The fall and rise of Johnny

Johnny is a little sissy

(Said the Bullies Three)

He runs from us and then he hides

It is such fun, hehe!

In the schoolyard, there we got him!

Cannot get away

The carousel we make him ride

We spin him ‘round for play!

Johnny is a little different

Has no friends you see

Shy and awkward (quiet too)

He shrinks internally

But a seed’s been planted, unintended

Which way will it grow?

Will Johnny turn out like a “Carrie” ?

None of us will know……..

Lee Dunn View All

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
