What I Learned From Irish Mythology - Poem by Caitlin Wagner

Don't mess with a hooded crow you're basically screwed
It's one of Badb's forms and she's a Morrigan

If you see a woman that looks like an angel and has a sweet voice
Cover your ears and run while you still can

You know the story of the rainbow with a pot of gold at the end
The only way you're going to get that gold is if you're smart

When you notice a woman washing your bloody clothes while wailing
Know that you should just give up your dreams

If your baby suddenly comes up missing from his or her room
The faeries probably did it

If your married to a selkie make sure you take the key with you
Or you won’t see them when you get home

When there’s a woman in the middle of vast waters
Don’t try to save her, you’ll probably end up dead

Children that say naughty words or tell lies will be eaten
So be a good little boy or girl
