Story

A priest was once going to anoint a man.

A priest was once going to anoint a man. He had a pony and trap and his man was driving. Keep out in the road my boy, said the priest. What's wrong with you father, said the boy. If you could see what I see you would keep out in the road. What do you see said the boy. Look over my left shoulder said the priest. He looked and saw dead people standing at the doors with heads in their hands. He went home and only lived three days.
