Shady Madonna

Mother died giving birth to the daughter,
but revives with a fury death's brought her
Possessing her child,
her essence gets riled,
and flies into murderous slaughter.

When she perished, her husband she'd cursed,
still bearing the grudges she'd nursed
From her deathbed she rises --
Mom's full of surprises --
And her parenting skills are the worst.
