Delcilia Won't Stop Screamin.

Shut up. Just shut the fuck up!
For christs sake stop snivellin.


I don't care.
Stay covered in shit.
You'll bloody well learn.


You want clean,
I'll give you bloody clean.
And stop your mangy whimpering.
You little shit.

Aww burny burny
Poor baby fucken burny.


Now shut up you hear.
I better not hear another fucken sound.


You little shit.
Hope you fucken die.

Come on mate, crack open another...

For Delcilia

Oh my God Glenn. You scared me. I thought you'd lost it! You really brought the reality home by writing in the first person but thank God you left the link to clarify. I was packed and on my way to NZ to save little Delcilia. What a's a sick world we live in at times.

I hope that this isn't what's in front of you all day- though, I guess it's in front of us all, isn't it- news stories like the one you link to.

This poem is so true-to-life Crunchy. Our silent everyday thoughts towards situations and people, are suddenly heard over a microphone.
You bring it out into the open.
Great poem.

My heart is thumping, my gut is wrenching, and my mind is hot with furor. You've evoked feelings I have never experienced with poetry. Thank you for addressing this horrific subject with such ardor! That poor baby, and all those who come after her. Amazing work, on a tender topic! Very scary how well done this is! You've captured the abuser perfectly. Physical and emotional abuse, a horrendous injustice!

You've captured this horrific domestic scene with such gruesome, yet beautiful, candor. The voice is so believable that I find myself shaking in fear at the thought of hearing someone say "burny burny."

Serves that mother right to be locked up for 16 years. I have sympathy for her as an abused woman, but that sympathy is cancelled out by the very fact that she became the abuser to her own daughter. It's a sad sad world we live in.

Did you know these people? It's even more tragic when poetry like this is based on real life events.

Hey Glenn, positively gruesome mate, I love it! I just finished reading Mute by PA (picked up on Amazon after you recommended it) and I loved it. What an imagination he has, thanks for the tip. C-ya,

Thank you all for your comments. I have had the pilonidal operation and have been unable to sit for a couple of weeks... even now it is painful! I have been reading your blogs as much as possible but writing much was out of the question :-(
