Just give me a little atomic bomb
Not too mutch just a little
Enough to kill a horse in the street
But there aren’t any horses in the street
Enough to knock the flowers from a bowl
But I don’t see any flowers in a bowl
Enough then to frigthen my love
But I don’t have any love
Well give me an atomic bomb then to scrub in my bathtub
like a dirty and lovable child
I’ve got a bathtub
Just a little bomb general
With pugnose
Pink ears
Smelling like underclothes in July
Do you think I’m crazy?
I think you’re crazy too
So the way you think.
Send me one before somebody else does.

90 minutes in hell

We need your help

Unlike many other websites, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep access to poetry as open as we can. Growing and maintaining Poeticous takes a lot of time, money and hard work, and the revenue we get from advertising is almost nothing, so we increasingly need our readers to fund us. If everyone who reads our pages, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. Support Poetiocus from as little as $1.
