"The Show" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on November 15, 2013

"The Show"

Guest starring

This thing named Eric

Born under a sweet southern sky

Sensitive skin, escaping death

Big shoes never filled

Forever the fawn

Lost and unbalanced

Hunted prey


Suddenly the shoe fits

Reluctant to wear it

Or walk the miles

It does it anyway, stubborn mule perhaps

Lacing up boots to kick shit

It trudges forward... this thing



Wasting time stomping the earth

Wasting time for what it's worth

This thing once thought it could fly

Scarred from glass above it's eye

A reminder that it can't...

Scroll up to the crown

What lay inside?

Filth, although it likes to clean

Sweet, although it tends to get mean


It likes to move, shake, morph, shift

An egregious ghost

Acting the fool

Gooey n wet, slippery madness, sloshing round the top it's handsome 6 foot pod


Determined...This thing named Eric




Conforming into nothingness

A character in the show none the less

Acquiescing to energy

Loud n bombastic

White noise

Black sheep

Neutered horse

Stubborn mule

Vain, selfish, spoiled fetus

Marching in man's epilogue

Ready and willing to change the channel

It knows this rerun

It helped write it

'It knows the ending

At least it has an inkling

The pupil below the scar twinkling

Indebted to the lying

Pigs forever flying

Above, it.... this thing

A runaway looking for a runway

Stay tuned and look to the sky for....

This thing named Eric

      Thanks Eddy and Jodah for the support and enjoyment of my stuff. It's is autobiographical for sure, most my stuff is. Thanks for "unique" that means a lot to me.
