Chop Off My Head

I’ve been thinking about writing a book of dark poetry for kids. You know, like Tim Burton for poetry and maybe a little more sadistic. What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? It would probably be too creepy for parents to buy. But I know the kids would love it! 

If I could chop off my head

And use it for a ball

I’d have so much fun

In summer, spring, and fall


Although it would hurt a lot

Every time my head hit the floor

My eyes, nose, and mouth

Would be a big bloody sore!


But even so, the best part

When playing with my friends

Even if they made a basket

I’d still be the one who wins!
