only i can have karma in my dreams

i had a dream where
i was wielding a sawn
off shot gun.
i pointed it at a man
and said,
"i know you are
wearing a vest,
but lets see if this
shot gun can knock
you on your ass."
then my dream changed
settings and i was in a different
place and a different time
i got jumped by five men and they
beat the living shit out of me.
i then woke up,
found a baseball bat
and jumped a man
and broke his knee caps.
after i was 8 dollars
and seventy-three cents
richer my neighbor's dog,
snowball, bit off my left testicle.
my only thought was:
i should have taken psychology.

This is not poetic at all.  It sounds like you'd be telling it to me over fast food...if you get my drift.

I like it but I would have peffered some flow in it and maybe an effort at rhyme.
 — gingerdave

this made me chuckle, probably because i'm taking psychology.

 — nicolecote

I admire your use of expression in which words have been concentrated blending sound and imagery to create an emotional response.
