Lovely Table

Lovely Table

A Chapter by Dave Brown



The day was so very hot

We went to the creek for a dip

Surprisingly, I seemed to be pulled off a rock

And was off for an unscheduled trip


Washed underwater downstream

I seemed to pass from this world

Being carried past ghastly sights

As down creek I was hurled


Dark eyes watched from black trees

Ghoul’s and Goblin’s screamed all round

All long the shore, Screecher’s danced

Each making a blood gurgling sound


The sky turned green then red

The creek water was getting too hot

Then a Cyclops with razor-blade fingers

Brought me to a sudden stop


He lifted and then he threw me

Into a now cooler creek’s flow

Sirens screamed, flashing red lights

As I was carried deep down below


To a cavern where black things flew

To a fancy garden table for two

Where sat my good buddy, Ghoul Gordon

With two cups of fresh perked brew


“Sorry for all the drama”, said he,

“But I just put on this special pot,

I thought we might both appreciate,

This darling garden table I’d just bought!”

Quite a happy ending there! After all the drama he ended up with nice, perky brew. Say my hello to Ghoul Gordon and the Cyclops please and tell them I too am waiting my turn.
