Deadly Romance

Angus and Enid
fell in love
on a different plain

(the one up there)
(Or down there)

They met, when Angus
lost a toe to dry rot,

their bones chuckled
as their teeth chattered

Enid loved his bony arse,

They walked hand in hand
knuckles clicking and clacking,

knees sounding like
knives being sharpened

It was a beautiful affair,

Until Angus, bent over and snapped.

love in Zombieland. This was a funny little thing that doesn't need rhyme or even a method. Just plain fun. Try [sounding] instead of sounded. It will still sound like past-tense. Chuckling still... ~ Gee.

Our Chatroom is open 24/7 Feel free to use it for
keeping in touch We have poets around the world and it is fun
to have real-time conversations with those that are up
all night or on the other side of the world.

Well I'm blown away that exact word is the only one that didn't feel right and as much as I looked and read aloud it didn't come to me, cheers,. lol glad you have had a chuckle, skeletons in the cupboard no way! Enid and Angus having fun!

Thank you...Teddy

I got the image of two Grateful Dead skeletons walking hand in hand. Nice, playful write. I have nothing to add or subtract.

That's exactly it, I found a really cool picture Enid had a viel in black and Angus a top hat. lol.

Nice to meet you, and I am so glad this took your fancy.

Thank you...Teddy
