Subject: happy? - Oct 4 (stabbed with a fork)

        On the fourth day of October I watched him coming home,
        Not thinking on a danger as he walked all alone,
        When like some hungry wolf or lion I sprang upon my prey,
        Twas with a fork I stabbed him and took his life away.

                "Wexford Girl" from MacEdward Leach and the Songs of Atlantic Canada
An interesting Maritime version-with-voice from the vast song family. (Great web site, too; a fitting homage to one of the great scholar/collectors.)

Apparently the day my younger brother was brought home for the first time, I (being nearly 2 at the time) threw a fork at him. I still haven't got over the grief of displacement.

I wonder if there's an Indian version of the song, in which the assailant smothers his rival with a chapatti?
