The Ballad of Eddie Crane

Edward had tried

to visit

the cemetery

but they

wouldn’t let

him stay

So instead

of a coffin

they locked

him behind

a door

and threw

away the key

The room

had

Windows

that wouldn’t

open

to forced air

that kept

him cool

Eddie was going

no where

doing things

that a man

shouldn’t do

At a time

when it

was consider

by most

misunderstood

So instead

of drugs

being brought

on the street

They came in a bottle

with a Dr name

The pills that

they thought

were ok

only made

Eddie crazier

then he already was

with side

effects

that cause

him pain

and all

Eddie wanted was

to commit

Suicide

So from

Druged to

Drugs

It became

a hospital

where he couldn’t……

Protected from himself

to be by him self

They told Eddie

Where

And

When

They

Said he had

to learn

how to

live again

On there

Drugs

The whole

concept

was based

in control

They had

all the buttons

and Eddie had

no more

strings

Cigarettes

and privileges

were earned

as was behavior

was deemed

Lighters and

sharp were

not consider

As was mouth

wash

wasn’t either

cause it

had alcohol

See the problem

was

Eddie couldn’t

do life 

Or

maybe

life couldn’t

stand Eddie

Which ever

was the

case

He had done

and gone

this way

too many times

Till his behavior

ensured him

there wasn’t

a cure

Finally what

set Eddie straight

was when he met

this person

who was worst

off than he

The only difference

was he was smiling

and happy

he even sang

songs

To this point

Eddie never tried

happy

didn’t know what

smiling was

So devine

intervention

had now a face

From that point

on life

had meaning

and took Eddie

to places he had

never been before

So maybe just maybe Eddie mite just have a chance to learn how to live.  So he could participant instead of being side lined without

even a prayer

    Is that a hidden poem, inside of the main narration?

    1. LOL! You can’t follow me. I can’t send you a letter… WTF!!!

      Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender

      I gave a letter to the postman,
      He put it in his sack.
      And by the early next morning,
      He brought my letter back.
      She wrote upon it:
      Return to sender, address unknown.
      No such number, no such zone…

  2. Oh unblot I am sorry email is tricky
    I went to you because it was….. I’m not sure why I did it that way,I really have nothing to hide,now if there is something you want to talk about,I understand if you don’t want the world to know
    As always Sheldon
