Skeletons In My Life - Poem by John Sensele

Skeletons in my life make me blue
As they shriek and freak out at inopportune moments
When in my mind I feel the true
Me is finally free from any pesky torments.

Skeletons from my checkered past like millstones
Drag me down and shatter the happiness
I feel I deserve although to me diamonds are more than stones
Which in eyes of material lasses engender cosiness.

Skeletons in my marriage wreak havoc
As hubby suspects Ambrose to resemble Anthony
Who somehow gives him a shock
All because I multiply infidelity gluttony.

Skeletons in my career come alive
When promotion within an ace winks at me
All of a sudden skeletons drive
My future away cos promotion for me never will be.

Skeletons arise when the national qualification authorities
Investigate the authenticity of the PhD
That pushed my application to the summit of priorities
Of headhunting that demanded competencies in my expertise field.

Skeletons in my dermatology reared their ugly head
When my upper arm skin exposed deformities
Complexion creams couldn't put to bed
Although natural ebony complexion suffers indignities.
