A Poem by Dave Brown



Every year at Halloween

Cupid felt out of sorts

With his wussy bow’n arrow

And silly little diaper-type shorts


This year he decided to make a change

Fitting four fowl fangs and multiple claws

A cowpoke belt’n buckle replaced his diaper pins

And gnashing teeth were borrowed from Jaws


Halloween night, while grabbing his pitch fork

And calibrating his GPS to find people prey

He ripped his ghoul cape on a toe claw

And his slitty eyes were eaten by a blue Jay


The pitch fork jammed into a real tender spot

While attempting to mount his broom

And instead of spending the night haunting

He had to repair his privates in the men’s room


He has given up on the haunting thingy

Now thinking pinned diapers are quite neat

And if he really wants to scare somebody

He just sends them a real nasty tweet

Ouch, that is seriously painful. So Cupid is out of action and in pampers. Still able to tweet nasties though. Where do you get these ideas from :)))

from deep in the recesses of a twisted mind
Take care over there
Back to the Pampers for this flying angel.

I understand he has now accepted the fact that he is a wus with a bow and arrow and will stick with .. read more
You tell this tale with such vivid realism, I might guess this is actually YOU, being cupid, being a worthless fool when it comes to playing the greedy macho games of this planet. Your opening verse kicks a*s. That is so sassy & feisty, I was laughing from top to bottom (((HUGS)))

unfortunately, he did get a 'sharp' rebuttal
Cupid gone outlaw? Chilling thought. Who will shoot all the arrows that will cause romantic love to bloom? On second thought, that might not be so bad an outcome. Go it boyo! Break bad!
