Voodoo Doll

I love this!

(Yes, and this is by the film master of the macabre - Tim Burton. Illustration too. From 'The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories')

Voodoo Girl - Tim Burton
Her skin is white cloth,
and she's all sewn apart
and she has many colored pins
sticking out of her heart.

She has a beautiful set
of hypno-disk eyes,
the ones that she uses
to hypnotize guys.

She has many different zombies
who are deeply in her trance.
She even has a zombie
who was originally from France.

But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets
too close to her,

the pins stick farther in.
