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 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 Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
