Thread Name: Origins: Is this a folk song?
Subject: RE: Origins: Is this a folk song?
I'm sure it is not an old song, because I have never heard an old folk song written from the point of view of a monster, demon, ogre or creature of that ilk. People so unsophisticated that they thought such creatures could be real did not feel empathy with them. They feared them and tried to fend them off with magic.
