Edward Gorey was a gothic writer who, in 1963, published The Gashlycrumb Tinies, a book detailing the gruesome deaths of 26 children - one for each letter of the alphabet. (You can read it online.)

Of course, me being slightly obsessed with SPN… and it being Halloween... well. It started off with:

S is for Sam, who fell in a hole,
D is for Dean, in hell for his soul.

And it kinda snowballed from there. Who knew poetry could be so (disturbingly) fun to do - and hard to stop?

Not spoilery, but just to be safe, skip C and S if you haven't seen 7x01 and 7x02.

Enjoy!


A Supernatural Amphigory

.

.

It's All Hallows Eve; gather close, listen well,

To this terrible tale of tragedy we tell.

.

These folks bought the farm, cashed in chips, bit the dust,

Kicked the bucket, gave up ghosts, or simply went bust:

.

.

A is for Ava, neck snapped with a jolt,

A also for Andy (not enough salt).

.

Unfortunate Ash, the Roadhouse his pyre,

And don't forget Anna - Michael did fry 'er.

.

Another A: Adam, fell into a Pit,

And finally Alistair - Sam's the culprit.

.

B is for Bobby, neck busted in two,

Now back in business, though, hunting to do.

.

B also for Bela, found by the Hound,

Balthazar too, knifed to the ground.

.

C is for Campbells; violents deaths, the whole tribe,

And also for Cas, who souls did imbibe.

.

D is for Dean - where the hell do you start?

Crushed by a car, hit in the heart...

.

Decked by a desk and hacked with an axe,

Death via sausage, tacos, and snacks.

.

Move on: E for Ellen, along with her daughter,

Exploded in glory; Hell's now four Hounds shorter.

.

F is for Fergus (that's Crowley), who fell

Dead (so you thought), bones burnt to hell.

.

G is for Gordon, garrotted with wire,

G also for Gabe, whose tricks did backfire.

.

H is for Harry - wait... not dead! (More's the wonder)

Ifor Impala, crashed once, twice asunder.

.

J is for John. Dealt with demons. He's dead.

J also for Jessica, pulled from her bed.

.

Let's not forget Jim, pastor/hunter, throat slit.

Also poor Jimmy, Cas's human outfit.

.

K is for Kripke, Kripke'd on set,

Lis for Lucifer: Sam'd, his end met.

.

M is for Mary and Mother of All -

One drank ashy vintage, one bled on a wall.

.

N is for Nancy, blown up in the station,

Ois for Odin; bled out in Elysian.

.

P is for Pamela, stabbed by demons mid-search,

Q: Queen of Hell - Lillith - killed in a church.

.

R is for Ruby, who made it three seasons.

Helped train up Sam, for all the wrong reasons.

.

S is for Sam, knife severed his spine,

Then fell in a hole, an endless decline.

.

Like brother, like brother - Sam don't stay dead.

Came back sans soul, then wrong in the head...

.

Next - T's for Tessa, assistant to Death,

(Not sure if she lived, though, or ever took breath.)

.

U is for Uriel - dick, funny or not,

Knifed dead by Anna when he lost the plot.

.

V stands for Victor, killed by Lillith as well;

W for Witnesses, laid to rest by a spell.

.

X is for Xavier, Poker Victim Number One,

Yis for Yellow Eyes, shot by Colt's gun.

.

Z is for Zachariah, knifed jaw to brain,

He won't be playing his mind games again.

.

.

The body count's high, from A, B and C,

All the way through, to X, Y and Z.

.

So stock up on salt; lock your windows, my friend.

For no one is safe from supernatural end…
