Ms. Scarlett

Slinky Miss Scarlett
was a suspect, you know.
She appeared in every room.
The wielded candlestick caused deathly blow.

Professor Plum

Professor Plum seemed a gent,
educator in college of note.
He never looked the suspect type
’til in library with lead pipe, he smote.

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.
