#22 Melisandre

If you ever wondered

What would make grown men 

Howl with disgust

When watching a show with

Bloody spears piercing skulls,

Eyeballs popping from heads,

Zombies rising from piles of blue corpses,

Dragon-charred bodies of innocents,

Children burned and hanged from castle walls,

Heads on spikes,

Rape, incest, and

incestual rape,

One needs only show

A naked old woman

To illicit

True terror.
