Fairy John is a true story about a man who spent 20 years in bed traumatized by what people categorized as being Fairy Flicked or scared out of his wits by the wee people "FAIRIES."

Fairy John

Twenty years passed slowly by
He never left his bed
the cause, some say was physical
more say in his head
The old folks say that fairies
are really whose to blame
Their Magic spell entranced him
and he’ll never be the same

They say that in the woods one day
by Fairies he was chased
In fear and desperation
back to his home he raced
He ran into his bedroom
and for twenty years there stayed
Never once revealing
what made him so afraid

John was in a wheelchair
to navigate his home
confined to stay inside his house
never more to roam
Some say they have seen him
on dimly moonlit nights
walking cross Hearnes Meadow
with face a deathly white

They say that John was gifted
He wrote letters to the Queen
and carving wooden effigies
the likes they never seen
His mastery of poetic prose
shone thru in words he’d write
a self-thought intellectual
so talented and bright

A story told of when John died
sweet music filled the air
some say it was Angels
or were Fairies playing there
Whatever source the music came
this low melodic tone
people believe he’s now at rest
an Angel at Gods Throne.
