Poorly Sewn!

There's a monster poorly sewn

Frankenstein, not a clone

put together from death

no need for breath

different parts and pieces

with lots of creases,

a weirdly shaped head

a body too huge

and a neck

where bones protrude

was his blood stewed

where did he

come from

some body-mart

an alien planet or garbage dump,

he grunts his words

but seeks

softness and warmth

poor, misunderstood creature

hounded by people with

even worse features

pitchforks and torches

under a full moon

they scream and chant

burn, burn, burn

will they achieve such a gruesome task

or has nature got plans 

for this poorly made mass.

  1. Much of my own sewing falls into the Halloween category.
    Thank you for this - and a Happy Halloween to you.

    1. Mine too, but I still love doing it. Takes me back to memories of my Grandma! LOL
      Happy Halloween!

  2. Now that you mention it, he is stitched together all wrong. You would think a doctor would be good with stitches.

  3. Happy Halloween, Yolanda! 🎃 I love the poem and the word body-mart. Makes for a fun, visual image. 🦵👂

  4. Great little poem and perfect for HALLOWEEN~~~

    1. Thanks, Michael, it is perfect for my Halloween this year!

  5. Hi Renee - all mine would end up like this ... in fact unlikely never finished. Love the poem and the image - and those thoughts ... cheers Hilary
