28 -The Dead Man In The Basement

Poem number 28
.
The Dead Man In The Basement
.
The Dead Man In The Basement
Should be out of sight and mind
But The Dead Man In The Basement
Well, he’s nothing of the kind.
.
The Dead Man In The Basement
Smells of pork and long goodbyes,
The house is always buzzing
With his colony of flies.
.
The Dead Man In The Basement
Left his mark upon my wall,
A vivid scarlet bloodstain
From the night he took his fall.
.
The Dead Man In The Basement
Hasn’t gone, he’s always there
In the creaking of my floorboards
And the cobwebs in my hair.
.
The Dead Man In The Basement
Lies in waiting for the day
When he rises from the basement
With a grin, and makes me pay.
