Poison Ivy - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Wrapping around your limbs
they take a vice like grip
they'll bleed you dry
until there's nothing left
they care for no one
but themselves

They'll hurt you and your family
they'll hurt the young and the old
they are poison ivy with no soul


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Everybody knows these kind of people.
