So you think you're a kat...
So you think you're a Kat, and part of the Krewe?
Watermelon, Watermelon Red to the Rind,The chant is repeated over and over, while the person carrying the Watermelon moves about the crowd gathering the vibrations of all those present. This process continues until a large crowd is singing the chant or running away in fear and confusion. Those present are permitted to touch the Watermelon to pass on their blessings. As the din of the chant rises, the Watermelon is placed on the ground. The crowd, deeply entranced by the chanting and the Watermelon energy, dances around and over the Watermelon.
If you don't believe me, just pull down your blind
Sell it to rich, Sell it to the poor,
Sell it to the lady Standin in da do-or-or,
In da do-or-or
|Mark approaches carrying the blessed Watermelon as the Sacrifice begins|
|The tempo picks up tempo, Mike and Mark taunt the crowd with the hallowed melon. The moment of sacrifice approaches.|
|At the peak of the chanting, the Watermelon is released skyward. Shattered on the ground and consumed in an orgy of Watermelon energy.|
