Low Tide (The Scum) ~


When we all read her watery words
The word 'ugly' always comes to mind
They can be quite frightful & dire
Hideous verse - oft' times unkind;
She can be outright offensive & unpleasant
Morally decadent & corrupt
Surly & arrogant
In speech - quite abrupt;
She's deserving of some 'Karma'
On this - we all agree
For 65 years she has lived
Doing her wrongs - while remaining free;
How dare she mope about loosing things
That she has worked so long on
Only psychopathy could rule her mind
For the thing she mourns- have been terrible wrongs**

Poet's Notes about The Poem

By, Theodora Onken

June 14,2013


And all of the elves are wondering
What will happen next...
Wondering about the FBI and Interpol
And her next text...
** Stands for victims of her and her
Circles crimes - ** we are two of them.


Mars is in the second house
And Mercury is aligned right in the car
There's a fire in the stone pit
And U Haul is the latest of our all stars!
The water is always tested
For it's sheer purity
And to just say that we have your number
Would be down playing your: Come to be.

    On the top some people seem to be nice and friendly. Deep
    underneath all that there lies an individual that is not so kind,
    and not very friendly. You will know them by the fruit they bear.
    Nice write. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
