I had no ideal how much grief those animated Characters saved me from until it was all over. I read every children's book in the library to cope with reality. We can all get through this..

 

Poet M.e.

I remember Christopher Robin When helping Pooh find honey Was my biggest problem I remember the blustery days We trusted each other in every way I remember When we helped Eeyore Find his way home from the Sea shore Everything was good In the Hundred Acre Woods I remember Curious George I had to chase him a hundred miles As soon as my mother kissed me good night We went around the world But we made it home Two minutes before sunlight And everything was alright And Sammy the Seal would let me get on his back And ride for a million miles We exchanged halcyon smiles And I remember the monster Who brought fear to the hundred acre woods Scarier than the Heffalump Scarier than the thing with the Black eyes He was pure evil in disguise He told lies Filled with evil and guile Christopher Robin called him a Pedofofile It tried to seduce me Ten minutes after my mother introduced me I remember that ice cold June When Mama said “We’re getting married soon" And Disney left the room I remember when Larry Flint And Hugh Hefner moved in And H.A. Ray moved away And Dr. Seuss and Syd Hoff Took the Summer off I remember seeing the door knob turn The Pedofofile kneeled on one knee Said he had a story he wanted to read to me And he brought pornos to my bed Mother Goose turned her head Christopher Robin Fled Curious George hid under the bed And the hundred acre woods were filled with dread I remember us all gathering around The meeting in Hundred acre woods Christopher Robin said if I Opened up the pornofo graphic magazine I could be banned for good I asked him what’s a Pornofographic magazine He didn't know exactly what to say But saidt they were ten times worse Than any blustery day But i was curious like Curious George I was curious like Curious George I opened the Pornofographic magazine I remember the woman I saw more of her insides than a doctor I remember the dog on top of her But I can’t tell you what they did And i cried out for Winnie the Pooh I just wanted to be a kid I remember the last time I saw Christopher Robin Tears rolled down his chin he asked me why I had to Let the pedofofile in And it was a blustery day times ten And I waved goodbye to Piglet And Roo to Tigger And the heffalump too But Mostly I remember standing closely To Danny the Dinosaur He told me he would always love me But I couldn’t slide down his back anymore I remember 1974 2011 Dr. Seuss Poet M.e. Michael Ellis..

It was Donald Duck who helped me through. And Charlotte, Wilber, Dr Seuss and Beautiful Joe. I am so touched by your write, of course it's too raw to be fictional.. I agree we can get through this.. As a child,writing in my closet, hiding from the axeman. Reading and writing saved me. Thank you for sharing your pain & strength. Shaunda
