“There, there, my child. It’ll be alright.” 
Then maybe he’d be somebody somewhere.

Kuchisake-onna


She’ll ask is she pretty. 
Say no, she’ll stab you.
Say yes, she’ll slash you. 
Either way, you bleed.

His visions were somewhat mediocre and his deeds were not overly impressive.
Even his torture and execution lacked originality. 
He’s the patron saint of the insipid.

Saint Blaise


Doctor of bodies and souls, human and otherwise. 
Arrested, flayed with iron combs and beheaded. 
Became the patron saint of wool combers.
