At Least He Pays The Bills, Sis, I Know... - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

cackling laughter fills the childs mind,
shes a puppet on a string, with all her
barbies and toys, shes daddyies lttle
girl, when hes mean and drunk, shes a
picture in his office, that dosent move
or speak.

    I noticed you state you are a guitarist before poet and I always hear your words to song. Short sentences. Alot of impact with a little bit of words. You must be able to play and sing at the same time and anyone who plays knows it's a talent to do so. Great poem, gave it a 10. (Report)Reply

    I didn't somehow see it as a molested child- more as the dual personalities that people force others to conform to. Nothing but a picture- nothing but a child.. not at all a person. It's in the way its read, I suppose.. (Report)Reply
