My Monster Has a Funny Name
and post notes and photos about your poem like Eileen Manassian.
My monster has a funny name,
It is Eileen; she has no shame
She tries her best to bring me down
gifts me the thorns, instead of crown
She lies awake; won't let me sleep
and into bed with me she'll creep
this monster whispers lunacy
and says I'm ugly as can be
I feel the sting of bitter lies
and tears unbidden, flood my eyes
"Your fam all have, a Ph.D
You're yet to get that fine degree.
You're plump and frumpy, overweight
This truth, my dear, I understate!!!
You want to be the poet Queen
Far better rhymes than yours I've seen!
You're scared you'll die in dead of night
the way you are, that seems 'bout right
And let me say this little truth,
don't think me mad, or mean, uncouth...
the world will be a better place
if you don't show your ugly face!
You're aging, and it's clear to me
All pruned and wrinkly you will be.
Your "beauty" will not really last,
so keep on dreaming of the past.
Now, here's the deal; I'll set you free
These pills will end your misery."
She's given trouble from the start
and though I try, she'll not depart!
She'll keep on going, till I'm dead
This monster living....in my head.
