Who Killed Me? - Poem by Ted Sheridan

I’m a dead man already because I didn’t chew my food thoroughly
and I drank far too much whiskey and rum, vodka and gin
beer and Mexican bottled piss; I drank it by the gallon, warm and smelly
and then recycled it into my morning juice just before sitting down to shit bricks
of flame retardant sushi and seaweed into a watery porcelain bowl of death
where bloody stools don’t lie and cloudy urine is a testimonial to one’s weaknesses
I’m a dead man already but the time of death is still in question….
Which is why I don’t expect that I will be charged with my own murder….

    Life after all is about being happy and looking forward to more, sounds like you found a way to 'Kill' death, that's why you are alive :) Death died before you :) (Report)Reply

    Ted, every poem you write amazes me more than before. You are a master of your own thoughts. I loved this one.

    Grand Ted - no mincing of words in relation to bodily functions! And there's a certain perfect logic to your conclusion of course.... t x (Report)Reply
