.Open Mic: Some Poems Are Bad

“Some Poems Are Bad” by Saundra Rae Davies

This poem is bad
It’s not sad
Cause I’m mad
Madly madly mad

Been had
By many
Not just poems

Had a lover once
Twice or more
Truth be told
I wasn’t nice

I was seductive
Like a snake
Writhing toward my victims

Biting a ration of a body
Tastes bitter
No compassion
Just passion

Some poems are bad
They make me tell the truth
Sometimes I’m bad

Saundra Rae Davies lives in San Anselmo.
