Yet loathe the banquet which perforce
Must feed thy livid living corse,
Thy victims, ere they yet expire,
Shall know the demon for their sire
"Please tell a story about a girl who gets away."
I would, even if I had to adapt one, even if I had to make one up just for her. “Gets away from what, though?”
