Each stanza of this poem comes from a different urban legend. Some have roots that seem to lend credibility to the stories, but in the end, most are considered false or fictional....or are they?
Can you name them all?

These are all American urban legends - most have a backstory which can help you discover their origins

Don't know, Bro. Probably all American. That does not necessarily mean I shouldn't know. Interesting poetry.

No I cannot name them all...but you showcased these well. Are there such things a rural legends of the haunting kind ?
Well there must be as we had several in the small area in Virginia where I grew up.
