Typhoid Mary

Typhoid Mary

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

this is for all who are and have been played by a controlling narcissist.

"
Control Painting by Laura Barbosa - Fine Art America
Typhoid Mary

She's most cathectic;
a real primadonna.
She's most narcissistic so 

control driven.

Miss Mary Mallon 
denies her corruption and
relentless obsessions.

She watches inside 
the back of her skull,
speaks without eyes.

just like a mole.

A hanger-on to treacherous games;
rigged and morphed by day and night.

She never sleeps,
she always wins;
she always wins without her eyes.

Doctors of the sciences keep looking
for her answers.
 
Mary keeps on cooking and
in the loo surrounds her self
with maps that
release her illness.
 
She shreds  to pieces and shakes loose
all threatening closeness and
all blames for the calamities.

She makes you play. 
She makes you pay.

She inflicts the disease to
all around her.

Madonna of Death. 
Ms. Prima Donna of destruction. 

The innocent 
Ms. Mary Mallon.

Oh, E, this one describes someone in my life to a tee. She is never wrong and she changes the rules of the game whenever she thinks it will favor her. Passive aggressive and never really seeing things as they actually are. She is an expert at blaming everyone around her for things she has actually caused. Ah, yes, I know Ms. Mary Malone well. It's a shame people such as her invade our lives. Lydi**

There's one on every continent so I've been told by 'Queen Miss Malone' - the She knows who knows everything but - little else. She grapples life in her own festering fashion putting down anything reasonable for no rhyme or reason because - she has neither. And so it goes on until the day will come when she and her like will 'ghettified' and left to bore each other to extinction. How do I know that.. the Queen told me!

Oh i like this sir noodle!
I found out about that story on a quiz shpw here called QI and if i recall, the host of the show, saint Stephen Fry, pronounced her at the end as a bit of a scoundrel and a massive s**t of a person, referencing back to a quote when the then king was asked of tge opinion on a guy who tried to kill his wife with a gun he had, loaded with.... Tobacco!!! &!
I know smoking kills, but didnt know it could be shot at you.
Unsurprisingly she survived and tobacco man got a nice new ropm with bouncy wallpaper and wraparound jacket! 😊
I bet she wouldnt have worn a mask during lockdown either! 😊
Hope you and beaur..... Bowreg... Scooby is well 😊

A powerful message here Einstein; at least she was responsible for Covid but Typhoid. Lots of people are control freaks, disease carriers without knowing, whether physical or mental.
I think you are safe in the beautiful Ozarks. Lots of new facts coming out after the damage is done.

Yes siiiirrrrr. You are right my friend. And, welcome.
Oh Typhoid Mary! She had to work to survive… but in survival she killed her employers…. What a conundrum! What a perfect description in your whimsical voice. The contrast of your words bouncing around on the page so joyously and the darker themes in some of your poetry is so artistic. Thanks for sharing!

I have no idea who Mary Mallon is and by the way you have described her, I’d rather not know. Narcissistic people are the worse kind and are best avoided if possible. A scathing poem, truthful in its description.

Oh yes. We all know someone. I liked this. I didn't realize this was inspired by film until I googled Mary Mallon. I'm intrigued!

I know a few of these people...you describe to a "T."

And they are mostly a danger to themselves...living in a fantasy.
Self-destructive and unwilling to see that.

This reminds me of those Black widow killers very cunning, really warped. Some women are like this Gene and no matter what you would say to correct them, you can’t argue with stupid. Scary! You captured the mood quite well with the evil and darkness.

Always welcome bro. I gotcha back!😉
I remember reading the case of Mary Mallon and typhoid fever. (Ms. Mary Malone? )

I think at some time in our lives we will or have met the likes of who speak of. I'm reminded of the female killer Courtney Clenney, who was a spoiled young woman who needed attention from others and , in her jelous mind, was never wrong.

There's lots of great lines in this. Great poem.

Dear E……I know people like this…and you just want to squeeze them and tell him the shut up! They know everything, ( at least they think they do) and blindly move in passive destruction….. and worse yet, she spreads he egotism and ugly personality to others unfortunately….. and blames all her mistakes on others….. nice E.
