About TAD



Bang! Bang!
You’re dead.
Fifty insults
In your head.

Blast! Blast!
You’re fried
’Cos I told all my friends about you,
But I lied.

I just killed a man,
But I have no gun.
In my hand I hold
The smoking tongue.

Tad’s Note:

I’ll never forget the immortal words of my
dear, departed Grandma Lillie Root, after
I read her this particular poem of mine.

She exclaimed,
“What depraved mind wrote that?”

I responded, “My depraved mind. It’s about
how we can kill people with our words.”

She was still not impressed.
