Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

Considered a delicious catch
the girl went to the football match.
She dreamed of having ten big babies
she itched, it was a case of scabies.
She had a million in her snatch.

The doctor gave her a prescription
he wrote it in some weird encryption
he gave instructions on the use
and showed her how to light the fuse.
I think the doctor was Egyptian.

She lit the fuse and watched the Lakers
she offered sharing, but no takers
thus by this most convenient means
she blew herself to smithereens.
The doctor called them widowmakers.

Such a rough game.
Such skills required.
And popular.

I stopped right at the scene of tragedy.
She stood, head bowed, long neck, wings drooping,
and motionless until she saw my face.
Damn, it was obvious, he had been truly slaughtered,

I was not looking when you found me
you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
