Happiness & Suicide

A Poem

broken dolls and toys

for all the little girls and boys

candy treats and honey suckles

round-faced and belt buckled

overweight and overused

ice cream and gingerbread, too

laughing gayly to sing-along songs

face-embraced-pat-a-cake

while slowly starting to fake

smiles smiling all the time

grins grinning to homemade rhymes

high school jerks beat up on kids

smaller weaker frailer meeker

pat-a-cake-bake-me-a-cake

stop

chubby chubby hubby bunny

stop

meeker frailer weaker smaller

stop

kill kill bullies kill

stop

don't touch me

stop

kill me

stop

I'll jump

stop
