the púca

The púca is a legendary nature spirit of Irish nightmares and folklore. This shapeshifter takes many forms – human, horse, wolf, cat…. even a rabbit. Even William Shakespeare’s Puck it based on a mischief-making púca. This poem is a delightfully dark little ditty that celebrates the crueler nature of the púca.

This macabre little faux Irish faerie tale is narrated by the sublime Simon Howard on Twitter.
