I've done this illustration ages ago based on one of Tim Burton's poems. Reading also made me write yet another silly rhyme as I've been calling them! Well my Voodoo Girl is quiet different from Burton's own sketch. Here it goes:


You must have heard of the Voodoo Girl,

Her heart full of pins and her skin as white as pearl,

Though she was scared of all kinda “hugs”,

She couldn’t help but love that little “Clause”

He had cancer, see

No hair, no brows, unlike you ‘n me

They bounded pretty quick, him ‘n her

He liked her eyes ‘n she his bald shiny head!

On the last day of his life,

When the pain ran through him like a knife,

The Voodoo Girl gave him one last “hug”

Suddenly the room was filled with a strange thick fog

After hours they slowly fell apart

“Clause” smiling and she had a big red stain on her “heart”!

PS - For all the lonely kids with cancer...
