Payback

Death as ferryman

‘How much to cross?’ The Devil rubbed his bald head. He missed his golden locks.

‘Want to steer? I could use a break.’ The weary ferryman readjusted his tarnished crown.

The Devil laughed. ‘I lost my hair, not my sense.’

  1. I wasn’t familiar with this bit of lore about the ferryman, and I’d never heard the tale of the three golden hairs. Thanks for showing me some new stuff! And the mashup is fun. I like the devil’s attitude.
