SATURDAY HAIKU

"BRUTALITY HALL"

Cold doors are now locked.
"Twas a dark and brillig night?" 
Thunder slaps me hard. 

Wine, women and worms 
Have I wasted thirty years?
Don't close that coffin.

My eyes want to cry.
So why do I keep trying? 
My Host shakes his head.

In the billiards room 
There's a tap on my shoulder 
So I turn and growl 

Dignity? Oh yes. 
I think I remember You. 
So where did you go? 

Suddenly She's gone 
My question hangs in the air 
Salaciously sad.

I drown in my drink
In vibrant need of closure 
Sadly unachieved.

So I stagger through
Thick carpeted rooms of bile 
Please give me a crutch! 

What do you mean "No"?
'Twas worth a try, I suppose 
Will you set me free?

Elegantly cruel
She's turning the lights off now. 
So I keep running.

It's Game, Set and Match
I whimper in the cellar. 
Trousers in the bin.

Red dawn comes at last
So unlock the icy doors
Better luck next time?

    1. Haha, sadly your mum is probably right. 😦 I’m criticised for reminding certain chums to wash their hands on a night out[!] I can’t tell you why ‘worms’ is in that line, though. πŸ˜‰

      1. Yes, she’ve noticed foreign ppl almost never wash hands at home after “street” as we Russians do (if you been outside u have to wash hands when u get back home, that’s the rule lol). And never before they’ll eat lol
