Be Warned

Be Warned

A Chapter by Nix is typing...

A poem by Ts and Nix


I’m gonna get a quick shower then we can talk

Out the door, you may walk

But before you go, just be warned

I have the man I shot 


hanging on my door...

15 holes 

There was one bullet more but I missed

The list of organs I mauled

Scrawled in blood on the floor

He still whines and cries and calls my name

dead guys like to play that game

I know he's dead

But he just won't shut up

he said I should drink his blood from a cup

I'll have to bury him, along with the others

Mothers and brothers and daughters and sons I've put away

Thick clay will stop his voice

I tell him it wasn't my choice

Lazy dead b*****d

Won't lift a shovel to help

They never do

They just lay there 

To complain in my brain and drive me insane

Like it's my fault they had to die

The last guy is just a maggoty head on a pike 

I thought the spike would make him quiet

But he won't stop bitching to me about it

I'm itching to quit

All this killing takes time

I’m getting tired of hearing those dead folks whine

All of them screech like monkeys

Climbing, screaming, jumping 

The rhyming keeping me from pumping the brakes

Their dead bodies mutilated all to hell

Some covered in gel just to preserve them for later

A hearty (hardy) healthy little snack

I keep a collection of their obituaries in the back

A recollection of the facts

But really, I’ve lost track of how many I’ve killed

I keep the tapes under my bed

 their faces sundered with dread

 You wanna see?

Ah, it’s been so long since I’ve gotten to show someone

Oh! Lookie here! See this one?

He got on my nerves

 so he swerved into my new gun

I knew he would run

I’ve sliced so many to shreds

Cut off so many heads

Still, they scream and cry and yell

Oh, god, I’m going to hell

At least there they will serve me

For all eternity

Ts (T.S. Ulmus) and I did this one together, in case you're wondering how we came up with something like this, I said to Ts, "I have the man I shot 15 times hanging on my door." I honestly just said that to freak him out, I was talking about the "man" on the paper I shot a bunch of times at a gun range, but of course, he had to make a poem outta it so I just went with it.
Tell us what you think? :)

My brain is filled with fibro-fog today so I cannot come up with seamless coherent sentences.. (I called a lighter a "sparky stick" earlier 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

But I can say I LOVED THIS!! My favorite of yours so far! Please Ms. Can I have some more??

A bit gory you two ... but that is what you were after.
Reminds me of the work of Pol Pot ... Chairman Mao and Uncle Joe Stalin ... with just a touch of Rwanda tossed in for good measure.
Perhaps it is good that the man hanging on your door was only hit 15 times out of 16 shots ... at least he had a fighting chance.

Nix, you and T.S. do work well together ... one seeming to inspre the other to better writing.

Good work.

All this killing, mutilating, cutting, slicing, spiking is exciting me so much, I am setting out on my very own nocturnal killing spree! Care to accompany me Nix? Just leave those poor, riddled with holes sods and wretches hanging on your door. They probably did something to annoy you and thats never forgivable! I relate so much! What a lovely poem!

To be clear.. I sent her a prompt about a moth landing on an orchid. She is a complete psychopath to come up with this. (Our next stuff is writ but not published, it's a good read)

All things considered, I would say the mental health of serial killers does not rank in the top percentile.

A tale of blood and gore with one dude stuck to your door. Not the sort of stuff I want to dream about. Hate having nightmares Nix :) You and TS work seemlessly together.

Killing, hell-bound and talking dead. You had everything in these words. I believe in karma. In dreams, I was always a soldier. Always fighting someone or something in my dreams. Hello dear friend and thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Hahaha, thanks for the read and review, J! It's much appreciated!
Quite a collection of bodies there, Nix! I certainly enjoyed the blood and gore. In fact I relished it!

My favorite lines...?

I thought the spike would make him quiet

I have heard that human flesh is the tastiest of all so I kind of understood your need for making a hearty snack of those mutilated shreds to address your nutritional needs haha! Hannibal Lecter must be smiling his approval somewhere! Love it! A million/100

This poem reveals a great talent for diving deeply into characters and voices unlike your own. I am truly impressed. Yes, the poem made me a little uncomfortable, but it was meant too. It is a captivating piece, I was holding my breath while I read it.
