A Poem by Jerome Malenfant

Really, really bad poems


My love is like a thing that goes

Up and down inside my toes;

It climbs around inside of me

And falls asleep in my ice tea.

My hate is like a flower that grows

And writes real bad, decrepit prose

That wilts the soul and perhaps the spirit

And borders often on incoherent.

My mind alas is quite insane,

A fact I need not more explain,

For I can see all things that be,

All things that were, all things to be.

I hear the voice of God all day;

He really doesn’t have much to say.

He says it’s so lonely at the top;

He talks all the time; I wish He’d stop.


My tears they fall like lead balloons;

My angst, it doth so fill me.

I see but only gloom and doom.

I think I’ll go and kill me.

My sighs they echo through the night

I weep for all my sorrow;

I weep for my so wretched plight; 

I’ll weep till it be morrow.

I am accursed upon the Earth;

All do loath and shun me;

I am the butt of people’s mirth;

Even my cat makes fun of me.

I lie upon my tear-stained bed;

I lie there and weep until

I count up all the tears I’ve shed,

Then go and watch Doctor Phil.
