The Bogey That Wants to Feed Your Bloody Sleepless Eyes to It’s Half Moon Living Offspring!
So I assume most of you have some knowledge of Neil Gaiman’s romanticized Sandman comic what with its tapestries of gods, lies and esoteric plans that evolved slowly over the dreamer’s lifetimes … Well this ain’t that!
What we’ve got here is a good old fashioned nursery bogey, and one that really hopes you have a hard time sleeping… As that’s the first step in his pretty simplistic plan which plays out as so
Find children who are not sleeping when they should be.
Throw sand in their eyes, causing much irritation, and eventually dis lodgement of said eyes from said said child’s head.
Gather said “freshly dislodged” bloody eyes and plop them in a large sack.
Take bag of bloody eyes to the crescent moon where your hook bird beaked offspring wait impatiently for dinner which as it turns out is almost always bloody child eyeballs!
Repeat as necessary!
Now I don’t have much of a physical description for you as bogeys tend to be told loosely to allow for the imagination to run rampant… Some tellings have him long and slender, some tell of a squat troll like man… we know his offspring have bird beaks or at least hooked noses, and we know he’s gotta be strong enough to carry a bag full of eyes, and thats gotta be enough to draw something… so get to it!
We’ve got a holiday next weekend so I’m sticking with two weeks. The new people and the underdogs will continue to be given an unfair advantage come judgement time, and by no means is artistic talent the only criteria for judgement so have fun with it!
