A Date With An Anti-War Protester

Rating: 5.0

with Dracula
I've a date tonight
we'll be out late
and get a bite.

such a gentle man -
he gets a chill
whenever he hears
that blood was spilled

Topic(s) of this poem: humorous

I anticipated that this would be 'a funny'. Well, it is, in the sense of humour (dark humour) injected into a piece that makes you think and then think.. shouldn't we all be such a date? Your play on words is second to none. Your message is second to none. So - yep. Keep em coming. t x

I like this and other poems of yours because of what they don't say outright but indirectly. They are so suggestive.
