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!

HA!# this was great. What fun, loved the meter the poem seemed to pick up speed as we barreled down the lane. Just awesome. Reminds me why I live out of town.

Bad neighbors. Can be a real bear. Your description made me see and believe the terror of the new people. I liked the ending. A amazing poem shared my friend.

You did well. I enjoyed this one.
They're coming to take you two away, ha! ha! ho! ho! hay! hay!
Youse the neighbor about whom we pray, hoo! hoo! don't stay!
No way to compete with two dangling doofus's cray! cray!
You redefine "deranged" in a whole nother way, bay-bay!

If neighbors from hell moved into next door the scenario will be this poem. What can one do in a real life situation like that? Feel totally helpless. Your collaborations produce amazing writings.

An impressive collaboration. Spectacular imagery and emotion created in relatively few words, particularly frustration and dread. And, then you bring out some humor. I can't say much else others haven't said below. Nice work, sir.

This is when you actually want the real Omen.
Ten spears heading in that direction.
You wouldn't even have to explain to the Police.
Alas, not to be.
I'm running like hell.
They're coming after me.
