I AM A MAN EATER


The Sunday Muse #72

Getting my teeth stuck into the latest prompt.

Thank you, Carrie





I AM A MAN EATER

Fear not little girl
You are quite safe with me
I eat just men and boys, you see
So my menu's not got thee.

So do not speak too lowly
And make sure your hair's not short
Or I will get so hungry,
And will kill you just for sport.

For I am just a man eater
And I leave you girls alone
And not eat you piece by piece
And not chew bone by bone.

I may still look ferocious, 
And show a tooth or two.
But if they're inside my muzzle.
They will not you bite or chew.

But if you punch me in the face
Instead of kissing me
I might forget just what I am.
And have you for my tea.

A CLOSE BRUSH WITH DEATH


The Sunday Muse #70

Thank you Carrie for this challenging prompt.
Give me a petty face and I always try to summon inspiration, so here goes.



A Close Brush With Death

We thought you had gone,
To abandon this last remaining Earthly coil,
To flee this light into an unknown darkness, awaiting all.
You whispered Adieux from those sweet and gorgeous lips.
As that most unwelcome reaper grimly tightened his grip,
Too soon and far ahead of his appointed hour.
We shed our tears of sadness as your vessel sailed away,
Or so it seemed to us at that most dreadful hour.

Yet a flicker of life fought a stunning rearguard action.
You refused to obey all those cruel ropes tugging at your soul.
A hint of colour brushed across your lovely face
And life was again breathed gently into your soul and spirit,
Our heartbeats grew stronger to match your rejuvinated pulse.
And we wept with joy as we once more saw those open beautiful eyes.
