Red Rocket Running Shoes

 

Igor rigged two radical red rocket shoes

Guaranteed to vanquish any victim

He felt that by wearin these two

A lot of ghoul gobblin he’d be inflictin

 

The last human he’d chased, got away

And he was resolved to solve that situation

So come dark of night, the start of his day

He’d instigate some inspirational chasin   

 

Down the dark street, first victim came

Lookin like a particularly pretty piece of game

A pleasantly plump package on a hike down the pike

As delightful devourin she’d be something he’d like

 

He hummed to himself as she drew near

Salivating at her sweet succulent scent sent

He would start chomping below each ear

Then continue until, she was completely absent

 

He lecherously launched out of the woods

But his red rocket runners ran ahead, instead

Propelling him under a passing semi-trucks bed

That sped speedily over his head

This is a superb monologue in the style of Moore Marriot. Although Marriot didn't write about vampires as far as I know. I'm glad I came to it through Margie. Excellent piece of whimsy.

Very whitty. Somehow it made me think about a person who was killed in a hit and run accident getting his revenge on the killer.

Perfect food for thought and a perfect example of Karma. We need more of this in the world. Thanks for posting. :-)

Call me weird - but after reading this, all I could think of was a certain President (with orange shoes) eager to run after and chomp up a fake fat newswoman presenter. His demise seems fated to end the same way! Funny how metaphorical thoughts twist and turn in one's brain! Loved the write - great fun read! :=)

As you know, I love your snappy rhythm & rhyme -- most of the time! But this time the bounce isn't quite there. I love your somewhat complicated way of observing things & manicuring your delightful word choices into a sassy commentary. You've done all that as well as usual here. But this poem has the same problem as many of my own do . . . it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue! (Reading this helps me recognize better when I'm doing it). Still, your title is the height of originality for spooky writing! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
