Protected Three

Whisper….
whisper…..
whisper…..
whisper…..
Grey Goose
Grey Goose
what do you see?
I see three harpies laughing at me.
Gargoyle ugly
bitter
remorseless
Three Sisters May
harridans
shrews
frightening they were.
Small children
some dares taken
most were not
for the Three Sisters May
ate them for breakfast
when they were caught.
None looked too close.
None cared for small children gone.
Had they looked a little closer
they might have seen…..
the little ones who disappeared
abused
misused
treated like filth
by those who should have cared.
Taken to shelter
to a place
where children are children
not pawns in a game.
Had they paid the slightest
smallest iota of attention
a connection could be made.
They would have discovered
a slew of unmissed men.
Those that died
murdered
suicided
accidents……
All had one thing in common
pedophiles they all were
each missing a….
uhmmmmm
rather important part.
For the Three Sisters May
protected the innocent
making the evil ones pay.

Haunted Photograph

****I was looking at an old photo and this is what I came up with. It is a little different from my usual.****
‘Joseph. Joseph! Oh dear Lord what is that girl doing?’
‘She doesn’t know we are here.’
Hushed voices.
Hissing.
Gasping.
Appalled.
Uncertain as to what they are viewing.
‘Why is she getting on her knees?’
‘Well that is….absolutely…..Joseph stop that.’
‘Jesus woman you didn’t have to elbow me so hard.’
‘She’s…..what is…..why….Rosie do you see….’
Head thrown back.
Whimpering.
Eyes rolling back.
Near death experience.
In flicker of moment
I saw them.
Staring
In disbelief
Horror
Indignation
Snapping me from pleasure
To sheer horror.
They had finally come for me.
In my family this photo travels
Due to spirits candor.
Home they had come
To roost with me.
Damnit it all
Now I will never get laid.
