Hats Off

Hats Off

A Poem by Chloe
"

Read "Here I Am" and "The Broken Yolk Slipped From The Pan and Left the Meal".

"

Hats off, ladies and gents!

the actress has earned her life's performance

she bows, bows, bows

so shocking that she did so

I would have thought that she'd be too afraid

that I may approach her from behind

with the jagged dagger

that she ripped my smile with

 

Hats off, ladies and gents!

the actress lies in her bed, ill

her straining acting performance

has made her weak

she acted and pretended so well

we all believed her!

 

Hats off, ladies and gents!

she has made her return

so sick, so thin from that brutal false pretense

oh, but she missed the plays that she was to appear in!

 

Nevermind, ladies and gents

leave those hats on

do not throw them into the air with joy

I understand

you do not remember her face

it's not the way that it once was

now her face is so twisted,

with that bloody smile,

grinning from ear to ear

I guess the jagged dagger just slipped.

I love the narrator's tone, and the 'Hats off!' Quite catchy. Dark and morbid? Eh, not too much. Whoever said poetry was butterflies and rainbows was a little off. Love the idea and how you presented it. This was beautiful, bravo!

Dark and macabre with a laughing tone. Poe would be proud of writing such as this.

Horrific but well written. Not a grin you'd want yourself. Love it.
