No one knew
No one really cared
No one missed the jerk
That lived upstairs.

A little girl was missing
They looked every where
The only thing ever found
Was her doll upon his stairs.

He watched children closely
Carried candy in his pocket
Just talked to them mostly
But ended up on the court docket.

I knew the girl
She’s mine you know
I’d seen them talking
Days in a row.

The rules are no body
Criminals can’t be bound
Not guilty the verdict
Upset the town.

I the executioner
Was secretive and bold
The body won’t be found
How beautifully leaves turn old.

We have to renovate again and we keep putting it off. Our excuses include company, vacation and timing.

I enjoyed the light 6W6 and felt the impact of the the the very serious SC, one of the more compelling pieces I've read on that painful topic. Great writing!

Hi, glad you survived remodeling. Your poem gave me the chills!

Sandra said...

the poem is a little to dark for me. dark and to realistic and it speaks the truth of our times. that is what is scary about it.

My daily life belongs to computer

Lynne said...

Teresa Coltrin@Journaling Woman said...

Dark and telling.

Karen S. said...

Wow, this is amazing, and funly spooky- I actually came to read your 6WS- I haven't even posted my centus yet and usually post before I ever read any! Now I'm confused how I got here....from 6WS!

Karen S. said...

oops, I figured it out, your link at 6WS brings me here!

Irene said...

Youre displaying your darker side again. I'm glad you found a venture to do this in. I hope you don't identify too strongly with this. It lurks in all of us but we don't all have the talent to expose it. Or the guts for that matter.
