Misplaced

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2016 Challenge – Day 29
Write a haphazard poem.

Here lies Pete,
and there lies Pete.
Hit-and-miss in life,
he got buried twice.

Here lies Ann,
crushed by cans.
A random shopper,
her stockpiles dropped her.

Here lies old man Gleason,
They said he was shot for treason
he lost his platoon
while he stared at the moon.

Here lies Mr. Fry
He forgot
he couldn’t fly

Here lies Phil
non-payment of bill
He lost his money,
mob said, not funny

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
