Suicide Jack ... I heard his name for the first time -

Back in the autumn of 1972.

I was only 12 years old ... but the screams remain,

I remember hearing them on my way to school.

 = = = = = =

The older boys were always trying to scare me -

As we passed the Ole Town Mill - they'd tease and they'd taunt.

They would push me towards the Mill and call out his name,

Yelling "Jack's gonna bleed ya in the Ole Mill pond!"

 = = = = = =

I was so damn scared and had every right to be -

Jack was once a real person who worked in the Mill.

It was in the hot summer of 1950,

The Mill was thriving - many work orders fo fill..

 = = = = = =

Jack wasn't well liked - he wasn't one of the guys -

He was always the object of insults and jokes.

He vowed he'd get even - take-em all by surprise,

He faked his suicide - fooled family and town folk.

 = = = = = =

One by one .. the accidents began to happen -

A loosened saw blade - a severed arm on the floor.

Drilled out eyes and faces ground of...

  • evil
  • ghosts
  • haunting
  • horror
