El Hutchka

El Hutchka (Plague of the Mice)

In   the mountainous regions of Peru
Some say the rigid legend is still true, El Hutchaka:
Plague of the mice!
This nighttime, troublesome rodent occurs in mass
When there are two guilty spirits—brother and sister,
Guilty of incest; thus, the mice either plague the house,
Or the person, with endless torments!
Until they repent, or move on.
