Brew Of Vengeance (by: eddy styx) edited

burning you
in effigy
sounds so very
good to me...

so why not burn you
in the flesh?
I'll be fanning the flame to
keep it fresh

your kind of affection
I have found;
is like cold ashes
on the ground.

I've packed my bags
and pulled up stakes,
I'll leave you to
the rattlesnakes!

*this poem was written by my malevolent, murderous, MALE alter ego, eddy styx

"You Flaming F..." Lol.
Eddy certainly has it in for this one! I guess leaving him tied to a stake with branches 'round his feet, is a blessing, would be preferable to whatever else Eddy might have planned for him! Of course Killer and I love this! My only crit is that the second stanza seems a little bit out of whack. How about:

so why not burn you
in the flesh?
I'll be fanning the flame to
keep it fresh

I think it makes it a little smoother. Of course, as always, you are the Boss! ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

LOL! I very much like the way your twisted mind works. I'll be making the changes shortly...Greetings to Killer, too!

*ever, eddy
always, Cat
