Midnights Voice

Veteran Poet - 1,166 Points (November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

How I met my Chi

It was a dark night in November
A baby wailed as it was delivered
The mother gasped and breathed no more
Began the tale of sorrow for...

And every night was darkened pain
As Hannah would have to be refrained
Caught up in her guilt and pain
She's thinking about cutting again

But comes a rattle upon the pane
and in flies a spirit wind

'Who dares to cross this portal door
come out and show yourself I do implore? '

And Hannah stepped back all in fright
For it must be an attack tonight

But a spectral image of a shady form
Left poor Hannah so unadorn

'Speak! most devious one,
Tell me where your coming from.'

The image coalesced into physical form
That on the outside looked so forlorn
It parted what looked like lips
and uttered the word 'Chi'.

Hannah was quick to know
everyone has a Chi that flows
But still Hannah was confused
And the question now arose

'Of what Chi do you speak
and tell me how it works? '

But the only response was a hollow whisper
'Chi' was all it said

So Hannah was quick to respond
Ran to the refrigerator and opened the door
She grabbed a can and quickly returned
To the entrance with a can of
Five hour super Chi

She popped the top and poured it down
Into the spectral beast
It shook at first then burped at last
Wiped it's mouth on it's sleave
And passed some gas

then it said, 'Chi that was great.'

    Hannah's gonna have to open, a seven elleven for the afterlife if she keeps that up. Im not going to make Chi shots at this dense work of comic indecency but this was nice.
    Reminds me of a comical work of Poe if the guy wasn't manic depressive with TB. What I want to know is how many calories there are in Chi? (Report) Reply
