Little Joey  

I am...
I am not...
What a crazy word
But this sure tastes good!
Frank and Ellen won't miss him
Little Joey
Retarded and a crip too
More of a burden than anything!
Actually I did them a favor!
Some vacation time
They should thank me!
And damn...
What a fine sandwich!

Author Notes

As far as horror goes the black and sick depths of some people's minds have always frightened me more than vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc. Most of our "monsters" don't even exist. I do believe in ghosts but I figure if one comes to me, he or she will likely be someone I knew and therefore spooky but benign and perhaps even pleasant. But mentally ill and violent people are quite a different matter. There are sadly too many wandering around out there and that is truly frightening! I sincerely apologize if this poem completely scared you and/or made you want to vomit. Yet it should do both!

When you go dark, its way off the grid. It took me 2 reads and a scan through comments to get the full gist of this. Not what I expected, not where my mind was willingly able to go. I am looking for inspiration and will return another time when our thoughts are on the same train...

My Dear friend, I have missed you and everyone here. Please contact me if the site will stay up long enough to let you do that. I tried to put out a help note this morning when miraculously WN opened a second time to me. Just worried about how long it will stay and wondering if after the long absence if there is anyone in management will try to find 40 writes that will not show on my page. The day is about to begin and do not have time to go into life right now. I hope you get this, Please let me know. Blessings, Lesa
