Lloyd

A Poem by Hollywood
"

Description of another person I know.

"

Lloyd

He walks with a cane.

Limp. Limp.

He lathers on his afflictions

when put before an audience.
He explains his stories. problems. miserable life.

He has three ex-wives.

Four cats he sprays with water if he gets annoyed by conversation.

A daughter that insults him without hesitation.

Three out of four children have escaped him.
He's pitiful. Sad.

& if you ask him about it he's the victim & the hero

With good intentions & knowledge.

He claims to be a genius & wise.
Says he has good judgement but let's crackheads inside.

He meerly standsby when a crackhead tries to hold his daughter's hand.
Obvious she's scared, but he doesn't care.

He takes up residence some where far away,

In the depths of his brain.

I think we all have a, Lloyd, in our lives someway or another don't we? Very sad slice of reality here Hollywood. Thanks for sharing this peek into this ever increasing part of our society. Your talent is most evident in this piece.

Yes amusing! Strange though : ) It's quite a vivid and surreal world you breeze through here, which is genuinely interesting and really well written... another good bit of work!
