How Would You Like To Be Murdered?

How would you like to be murdered?
Have you thought about it at all?
Would you care to be hacked to death in a bath
Gunned down in shopping mall?
Or is poison a little more your cup of tea
Would you like to be stabbed in the back?
Or crushed to death in a garbage truck
Inside a black plastic sack?

How would I like to be murdered?
Well Iíve thought about it a lot
The very idea of being snuffed out
Makes me wonderfully horny and hot.
Iíd love to be lynched by a Nazi mob
Strung up by the neck till I come
Or chained to a bed and smothered to death
Beneath a Mistressís bum.

But who wants to be eaten by crocodiles
Or die making love to their aunt?
Who could think that arousing?
I, for the life of me, canít
But holding a gun will make a man hard
So itís all just a matter of taste
Should death be the sexiest thing that we do?
Itís always a shame to waste.

Some yearn to be horribly, tragically killed
Others might not be so keen
Like an innocent child who steps on a mine
And is blown to a smithereen
Yet all of us pleasure ourselves with the dream
Of a wake, and the tears that are shed
By our selfish, remorseful, dearest of friends
As we lie in our coffins; dead.

I dislike this poem to be honest as I find it unnecessarily crude for the question that is posed is a very deep and thought provoking one (How would you like to be murdered?) but the sexual tone at the end just ruins it for me

This disturbed me, we all wonder about death from time to time, but I wouldn't want to put my thoughts into words like this.

I thought this was well written if not very disturbing. It reminded me of William Burrows in a poetic kind of way

Hi Danielguy

uum very good flow and rhythm, great scan too with good choice of language. I found it a bit puerile in its substance, emotionally immature, somewhat violent but it did not offend me or anything and I had to laugh, though I must admit this would probably appeal to those folks who are into S and M (and there are poetry mags that publish such work).

The actual form of the poem is very good and there is very little forced rhyme!

good job for that!
