My Puppet Came to Life but It Had Psychological Problems.

Updated on December 28, 2019

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Creepy Puppet
Creepy Puppet

I made a puppet out of cloth and sponge stuffing

It was my creation but kind of funny looking

I used colorful cloth to make his body

And little buttons to make his eyes so tiny

I set him on the table and I began to pretend play

That he would be a real boy like Pinocchio one day

I created a tiny wooden bed with some hay and that was where my puppet slept

I also carried him on my shoulder because he couldn’t take the steps

I made a simple prayer one day and asked for life for my creation

And a miracle happened greater than impeachment of a nation

My puppet suddenly came to life and started reacting on his own

Then he looked at me and asked why I made him dress like a clown

He said he hated the bed and wanted something bigger

And he was afraid of society and wanted something with a trigger


I tried my best to please my little puppet

He said he loved music and I even bought him a trumpet

Then he began to dislike songs and asked for a pet

I gave him a little puppy I got from a vet

My puppet told me he was allergic to dander so i brought back the dog

Then he said he wanted to start a family of his own and I needed a bigger yard

He said that he did not like the sun and wanted to blow it up

Then he began drinking alcohol and began to hiccup

He said he needed someone to talk to so I gave a listening ear

He told me he felt like cutting himself everywhere

I was heartbroken that my puppet came to be this way

I couldn’t let him live one more day in dismay

So while he slept I pulled open his stitching

And set his little mind free from what seemed to be bewitching

Now my puppet is gone but a new one is on the way

I pray to God he just doesn’t behave the same way.

      A homemade puppet with psychological problems, only you would dream this up! I connected with him 'cos he was allergic to dander ( me too ) Oh well, no need to cry over ' spilt milk, maybe the next one will be perfect. Loved it!

      Clive,

      Such a cute and hilarious story about your puppet.

      I don't know where you get these ideas...you must be blessed with a vivid imagination.

      Nice one!

      I guess some parents must feel like that especially during the wayward teenage years.

      Clive.....I wonder.....Do you have any idea what's in the water in Jamaica? Only asking because a friend of mine wants to take me to Jamaica on vacation......and since knowing you, I'm a tad bit frightened....if you know what I mean.......no disrespect intended of course. Um.....ah......I mean, what happened to your puppet and all.....not there's anything WRONG with you or anything like that.....BTW, do you drink a lot of water, Clive?

      OK.......I guess that's all I wanted to know. I think. Rest up, buddy.

      Clive, I would love a glimpse at the inner workings of your mind. Your imagination never ceases to amaze me. Who knew you'd think up a cross between Pinnochio and Chucky? LOL

      This is a very obnoxious puppet, so you may be glad he is gone. I hope he is not causing trouble elsewhere.
