Garden and Nature in Words

Dr Moose

They tried to find labour
from a farm with no favour
so they left for a town
with the name of Renown

An ad in the paper
she read out aloud
Opportunity
Cash Paid
All Indoors
Start Now
and her and her friend went
along through the town
of Renown
to a house
with clay walls
and thatch roof
with some pitch
and the windows were barred
with some wood from a ditch
they could not see inside
see the man
near the door
with the knife in his hand
and a rack on the wall
with some blood on the hooks
and a hand all alone
stuck in the nook
of the rack and the wall
with the blood on the floor
so you see
they could not see inside
they could see nothing at all

So girl one and girl two
they knocked on the door
and expecting an answer
got nothing at all
just the door
and the knob
with the hole for the key
and the man with the knife
was waiting with glee
as girl two
turned around
to make her way back
so he opened the door
and as quick as a flash
had the knife in her back
and had opened a crack
from the neck to the ribs
and the blood it all splashed
but girl one she just stood there
only slightly abashed

Such a sad looking frown
he had promised to wait
with the girls from the farm
that she lead through the gate
it took months to befriend them
and attract them to here
where her son
laid in wait
and promised to share
but now it was over
he just didn’t care

They tried to find labour

from a farm with no favour

so they left for a town

with the name of Renown

An ad in the paper

she read out aloud

Opportunity

Cash Paid

All Indoors

Start Now

and her and her friend went

along through the town

of Renown

to a house

with clay walls

and thatch roof

with some pitch

and the windows were barred

with the wood from the shed

so they could not see inside

see the man

near the wall

with the knife in his hand

and the rack on the wall

with some blood on it’s hooks

and an eyeball all crushed

and stuck in the nook

of the rack and the wall

with the blood on the floor

so you see

they could not see inside

they could see nothing at all

So girl one and girl two

they knocked on the door

and expecting an answer

got nothing at all

just the door

and the knob

with the hole for the key

and the man with the knife

was waiting with glee

as girl two

turned around

to make her way back

so he opened the door

and as quick as a flash

had the knife in her back

and had opened a crack

from the neck to the ribs

and the blood it all splashed

but girl one just stood there

doing nothing at all

Such a sad looking frown

he had promised to wait

with the girls from the farm

that she lead through the gate

it took months to befriend them

and attract them to here

where the son

laid in wait

and promised to share

but now it was over

he just didn’t care
