Atrocious Jones

Atrocious Jones, skin and bones
speaks only in grunts and groans

Dark as coal in a deep hole
never helped a single soul

Malicious man grabs what he can
stealing everything is his plan

Ignorant, sly, watering eye
violence is his reply

Hate and greed is all he needs
as he turns to evil deeds

Atrocious Jones, sticks and stones
draws out precious blood and moans


  1. Can I borrow that (with credit given of course) for my husband's headstone?

    Or no wait -- it's too cool for the likes of him. I loved it!

  2. I love the rhythm of your words, very beautiful flow.


    awards for you,
    3 poetry,
    2 general..
    Happy Monday!


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
