Freshly Baked Bread

“Now, who will help me EAT the bread?” “I will!” said Pig. “I will!” said Duck. “I will!” said Cow. “No,” said Little Red Hen, “I’ll eat it all myself.” The other animals hung their heads. Damn , the farmer thought, she’s at it again . Now Pig will be off his feed, there’ll be no duck eggs, and I su...

An atheist at the gate

Is it my fault I held no faith?
I led a good life.
Have I no chance to get in?
St. Peter shakes his head, You never had a prayer.

Memory's the first to go

Oh, it tickles, she giggled
The octogenarian vampire groaned
Forgotten dentures again
Once more he'd gummed things up

I flee through a dark deserted city
Alone but for echoes of my steps
My heart lurches

Who was that masked lycanthrope hunter?

Expensive bullets, aye Tonto.
But settlers move ever westward
amidst things more dangerous

No Rewrites (b-3)

“It’s taken awhile but it’s a good first draft.” FIRST DRAFT? “Well, yeah. Like not killing is great but we’ve got nothing about GENERAL violence, like head butts or groin kicks. Maybe we could swap that for ‘Honor Mom & Dad’.” THAT ONE WAS YOUR SUGGESTION “Yes, because kids are always ‘I want t...

The Crisis

The prey’s shoes pounded pavement. Zom-boy pursued.
Indeed, thought Mother, THESE are the times that try men’s soles.

Finally showed up again - but maybe not for you (blasphemy 2)

“O.k. Bobby, so where’s this guy I ‘just gotta see’?” “Oh, hey Jimmy, he’s over on that hill telling stories.” “Telling stories? Like ‘The Moth’? I love that podcast.” “No, not like that.

"He'll eat 'em eventually," said Mother "he just prefers PRIME rib."

But I brought what you asked for... aaaaarrrrgghhhh! :)

The vampire hunt ended in tragedy when the new apprentice screwed up and brought a big hammer and several 16 oz. t-bones.

I creep, silent as I wish,
