FRED, THE DIS-EMBODIED HEAD.
Written by TONEYE EYENOT
“Well, fuck me dead!” exclaimed poor Fred, the freshly dis-embodied head.
Rolling off the foot of the bed, he saw his body twitch.
“I shouldn’t care but this aint fair! You psychopathic bitch!”
As he hit the bedroom floor, his killer bolted for the door.
Her hatchet, bloody, in her claw. Her vengeance justly sated.
“You got what you rightly deserved and no more”, Dolores stated.
She swung the bedroom door ajar, ran from the house and to the car,
as sirens sounded from afar. There had been some commotion.
She slammed the gears and threw the beast into a forward motion.
Tearing ‘round the corner wide, the car performs a sideways slide.
She near collects a passer-by, who hollers as he dives,
“My god, I can’t believe I’m still alive!”
