Disguise - Poem by Gordon Jerome

Have you ever seen
A mute woman scream
Or a blind man envision his fright
Have you felt your heart skip
As your mind starts to trip
From the horror that stepped into sight
Can it really be there
Standing twisted and bare
Pure evil summoned forth from below
With its unrivaled smell
From the bowels of hell
Not unlike some public restrooms I know
But wait just one minute
Theirs someone here with it
It’s my neighbor from just down the street
With his little boy Andy
After Halloween candy
As they trick me to get their treat
So I laugh till I gag
Then fill up his bag
And wish him on his merry way
For there’s lots left to do
To my cauldron of brew
Before this warlock can call it a day.
“closing thought”
Never should you judge by what’s before your eyes
Remember the beast beauty hidden behind his disguise
