Random Poem:


Skeletal creatures,
Dark and plain,
Sit at their table in vain.
Their gums do hold
Teeth, two or one,
And the rotting has just begun.
Filthy fumes
Do surround
The cavity that holds their sound.
Dirt expands
And occupies
The pit in which they lie.
Haggard faces
Haunt the dark
And mute the singing lark.
One’s claw-like hand
Does clench the spoon
Like trout in the mouth of a loon.
Ravenous tongues
Devour the rapture
Acidic mouths do capture.
