The Omen; Not the Movie

The Omen; Not the Movie

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

a collaboration between Mattevelli and Einstein Noodle

"
I chose the place and yet
My freedom is not met.
An omen moved next door you see;
Chagrined the hope in me

He seemed alright at first,
but life's become the worst.
That morning music shreds my dreams
and drowns exhausted screams.

And when I leave for work,
I offer him a smirk.
He walks his dog on my side lawn
and waves, with no clothes on.

the garbage piling high'r,
I wish his funeral pyre.
I never get such luck in life,
here comes ten kids and wife.

The look of them all ten,
presumed a brooding hen,
but she was more up top than that.
I looked and looked again.

The diesel fumes explode
from trucks and cars and pets.
the worst of it remains undone
the relatives have come

I lay awake all night,
nightmarish dreams and fright
along with crashing breaking sounds;
now stench of green abounds

The mower that I'd lent
returned with a wheel bent.
And that same day my cat was shaved.
Who could be so depraved?

Those kids keep setting fires
and someone stole my tires.
I've set a chair with a clear view
to catch what next they'll do.

clattering trucks of
    fire    and opus
        deranged the climate of 
my scopus.
an omen moved in next door you see

with gaping mouth i stood
                            the gendarmes 
closing fast 
    batons ..........a' whirling
                                              twirling ......... whirling
damn they've come
for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Hahahaha- Help need an Exorcism here! Excellent, comedic collaboration between Mattevelli and Einstein Noodle. Demonic neighbors- oh no! The maniacal music, the sauntering with dog poop out of bounds- OMG! Eloquent, whimsical, clever verses with jaunty, infectious cadence and great rhyming. An ending to die for- “ damn they’ve come..for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!” Superb!

dear E... glad I read your collaboration... makes me thankful we have not met our neighbors. There are huge tall trees between our property... that are old Fir trees... so far we do as we please with the greatest of ease.
They have a dog they let out in the middle of the night that barks at the Moon. So glad you made me realize how lucky we really are. truly, Pat
