23 Fitzroy Road, Beach Boys 1 - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

FAT dragons spoil the
fitches, plead says
john, before i take the
beach boys away.
FAT dragons put on a
suit, wash teath, and
drive away, into his
own private hell.
PLEAD says john, before
i take the beach boys
FAT dragon gets old, have
some kids, goes to work,
comes home with his hands
on fire, and repeats what
his father did to him.
PLEAD says john, before
i take the beach boys away.
FAT dragon silently flys

    Gripping, mysterious...and highly disturbing. I was intrigued, David. Do it again. (Report) Reply
