'The boy with no body'

On the floor where he awoke,
He was without a single limb.
He uttered a distressing choke,
Wondering who did this to him.

He was thrown over a tall fence,
And he landed next to a grave.
"Oh, there you are!" Headless boy said,
"I'll just stitch you back on again."

Hmm... :hmm: I wonder how a headless boy can speak :confused: Well I won't consider the poem from technical perspectives. Nice rhyming and an enjoyable ring to it despite its morbid approach!

I was grinning after I finished reading this. I strongly feel I shouldn't - but I can't help myself.

This was a really well written poem, in my honest opinion. Its metric, it has rhyme (both direct and indirect/near rhyme) and its story is fun in its own sick pleasurable way. Its a really good poem, and there's not much I can say.

There is one more aspect I'd like to highlight - the poem's writing adds to the flavour of this work. :) Well done.
