Black Shuck (Bungay)


The church appear'd a mass of flame
And while the storm did rage
A black and fearful monster came
All eyes he did engage.

All down the church in midst of fire
The Hellish monster flew
And passing onward to the quire
He many people slew.

Many were stricken to the ground
Whereof they strangely died
And many others there were found
Wounded on every side.

The church itself was rent and torn
The clock in pieces broke
Two men who in the belfry sat
Were killed upon the spot.
