Peculiar Poetry

Poetry with and without reason and rhyme.
Strange is what I strive for.
Expect lyrics and limericks, free verse and format.
Be prepared for bubbly and boiled, terrifying and horrifying.
Keep an eye out for those that provoke your thoughts, and some that bear no thought at all.
Many written for class, and others without much of it.
Feel free. There are no boundaries. Just think.
Consider, Ponder, Wonder, Imagine.
Argue, Oppose, Debate, Defend.
Perhaps you will be offended.
That's good.
Think about that.
Learn more of what you think.
How you think.
Take what you can from what you hate.
I don't seek to preach.
I only speak my mind.
A mind most peculiar.


25. "Poor Lorelei" (Sonnet)

Based on "The Scarves and High Collars of Degollando"


Poor Lorelei, an old maid but a child 

A pretty little thing we lost too soon

So sweet and humble, yet he grew so riled 

He took your life and head that afternoon 


Your love was but for one, he would not heed 

Your beauty cursed you till the day you died 

No matter how you love and clean and feed 

His mind will not accept you have not lied 


And so into the kitchen did he stomp

You gazed into that portrait you adore 

And back toward you, blade against his palm 

He hacked and hacked until you were no more 


Poor Lorelei, nineteen did you depart

That day you lost your head and broke our hearts
