Helluva: A POEM


Helluva: A POEM

I saw the one-eyed mosquito
It forked its dessert on my body
In the dark evening of a happy night
The flies were merry
They intercoursed on my leather bag
As I watched in awe through the broken mirror

The mountain of cashew is in the oven
Splatter is the sound of the scattered shit
Tell the watchman of the silent cry
The wetting of the cheeks with hot tear
The story that shocks the mind

My soul is inflamed; burning like fuel on fire
Guts whipped like the back of a shrew
Thoughts gathered like the gathering of soldier ants
The fire of my zeal have burned out

Smack me with your stinking breathe
Let the fart spill in my open mouth
Feed me a bucket of faeces
Dump me in the river of urine

Tell me,
What purpose is smiling in suffering?
Whisper to the cockroach
Tell him, I want out
For bad is the good of these days;
Life is a shameful gamble
The toy thing of the gods

For real, I was pissed off at the time of writing this piss. And the comparison played out before my very before. Have you seen flies intercourse? Lol, I did! Then all the rantings filled my stomach begging to be spilt in words. Lol, glad to read your words, Jodah.

Yeah, I was pissed, Ruby. Better come with extinguisher cos I need to expel these insects to where they belong. My thought was really in rampage at the time of penning this piece. But it's all calm now.

Thanks, Frank. I hope to bring it with calm next time. Lol

Thanks one and all for the interesting comments. My soul is indebted to you sweeties (is there anything like that? No? Then, I formed one) :)
