101 Ways To Die: It Is Certainly Off Course, Of Course, Of Course

Hello Fiends,

Here is another excerpt from a little book of death poems I am working on called ‘101 Ways To Die, Accidents, Murders, And Other Techniques To Lose A Life.’ Most of the deaths in the song ‘A Gorey Demise’ from my band ‘Creature Feature’ are based off poems I was writing at the time. This one was the basis for “S is for Steve who was shot with a bow.” Poor little unfortunate Stevie.

It Is Certainly Off Course, Of Course, Of Course

No more school
Summer is finally here
Now it’s off to boys camp
After a long boring year

With your bags all packed
Leave the parents behind
No homework, no chores
It’s time to unwind

Hike through the trails
Swim in the lakes
Awaken every morning
To the smell of hot cakes

While waiting in line
At the archery range
You spot a lizard
And a chase is engaged

Into the dry brush
You quickly follow
Suddenly a camper
Releases his longbow

Far from the bull’s-eye
He’ll soon feel remorse
You’ve been stuck in the head
By an arrow off course

Thanks for reading,
~Curtis Rx

    I hope it’s not wrong that I giggled at the end.
    I’d like to hear more about the unfortunate and ill-fated “A Gorey Demise” children.
