slither

come slither by my pretty boy
count the moments ticky-tock
slide your way into my mind
then freeze the hands upon the clock
and say to me in accents sly
this then is how your fate may fall
don’t play the game or sure as sin
you’ll answer when the furies call

come creeping in my pretty boy
take the moments grind them down
pose me in the spotlight’s glare
crown me with a thorny crown
and tell me of those little lies
spoken softly and in jest
then smile a feral smile and go
and leave me to my haunted rest

    Awesome poem! Sounds like he really was a “snake in the grass”..

    It’s actually pretty creepy–just the way I like it! πŸ˜€

    Is it better to hear the call of the furies ( persued?) than being harried by harpys?

        Well if I am goosed by a gorgon, then at least my back would be turned away from her and I wouldn’t be turned into stone. I would look like hell in stone, I ain’t no peach in flesh and blood but at least as such, I always have hope of improvement!

        • I’ve not encountered a gorgon, but I’ve managed the stoned part, and I doubt I looked my scintillating best πŸ˜€

    Excellent Hallow’een recital for a treat, when I went trick or treating you had to tell a joke, say something to earn your treat, this would have the person saying, “Would you repeat that?”, & then giving a treat.

    • When I was a kid trick-or-treating hadn’t really arrived here, but it does have that vibe πŸ˜€ Glad you liked it, and I do hope you are a lot better now πŸ˜€
