Magic Box

Rookie - 0 Points (September 3,1992)


'What is it? '
The silence
Breaks into bits
'I forgot where the switch,
Goddamn it! '

Chic-Tic tschh
Weird sounds I hear
My heart goes shhhh

'What's that? '
I sat 'That thing,
With the hat,
And looks so fat!
Eyes just like a cat! '

'Hand held head
Of some distant dead?
Is there dragon
Now crawling
Under my bed? '

Something hissed,
I guess I missed
'Sis! You creep!
Too late now
I have already pissed! ! ! '

    It's the real Paranoia played here with rhymes. Beautiful write. Something different. (Report) Reply

    Poems in the D-Structure of the poet are never understood completely, this one looks like a juvenile, suspense drama...with the role of punctuation and the play of rhymes and sounds! (Report) Reply

    Groping in the dark, you couldn't locate the switch
    Or in your panic, you forgot where it was
    By the time you understood what it was
    You had left your bed, wet and soaking...... Very courageous young fellow! Condolences! !

    Great play of sounds, Aswath! Congrats! ! (Report) Reply
