Ted Sheridan

*ted Is Dead Or In The Very Least Decomposing

Ted is dead
We just received the apologies
For any disruption in communications
That may have occurred
Between Heaven and Earth

First it was his dog
She was sixteen going on
One hundred and twelve
Her tumors had become laced with
Salmonella peanut butter and pistachios

The sickness of old age
Began eating at her fragile nerves
Devouring her tofu belly
Therein diminishing the odds
Of any possible return

Ted is dead
Ted’s dog is dead
Ted’s poem is dead
But…Ted is survived by his words
From a past life as a political junkie

    Ted will never die
    Nor his poems
    They will always be alive
    To tell the world
    That there was a man
    Who loved his cannine
    More than his own wife
    He made a monument
    Larger than life
    On a mound of Salmonella
    chicken and pie
    Long Live Ted
    Long Live his poems
    LOL
    lovely poem Ted
    a tenner from meeeeeeee
    Anjaliiiiiiiii
