THE VILLAGE #poetry by jay

I heard about the butcher who

butchered his wife.

I read about the candlemaker

who snuffed out his dog’s life.

I saw the gardener with a

pitch fork at his throat,

threatening to end it all 

at the remote end of a rope.

The village is haunted by this 

nightmarish tale of fraught after

scenes of bone-rattling wails.

The community is hung by their 

nightly entrails of non-stop

battling over the wicked details, 

of stories of horror with nothing to tell. 

No end. No where. No peace, in sight.

No witness to witness 

the final thoughts or breath 

of your love’s plodded, frightful

horrid night.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
