Character Poem

by William Skink

Victor Scene is quite a man
bionic tongue and a chemical tan
tall and thin with piercing eyes
Victor sees the biggest prize

Marshall Claw was born for this
light the fuse then close the fist
whitey anti this and that
Marshall gets hard for collapse

Cooper Todd got his pics
Nancy's laptop got deep six'd
goddamn, maestro, what the hell?
Cooper's pooper is not your bell

Joe and Jane are not insane
or any other ethnic name
words are different for the crown
(they read them hanging upside down)
