Me Make Funny Ha-Ha

Well, so far the few people that have read "Dracula Meets the Clutter Crew" have given it a thumbs-up. I witnessed one such reader and he laughed at all the right spots, so I consider that a win! It is in the hands (or inbox) of the editor now.

I'm still working away at my Haiku Horror Stories and have a favorite already. Not sure how many of these suckers would constitute a book, but I'll keep writing them and eventually, I'll stop. Here's a freebie:

When you meet John Doe
Try not to look at his hands
Its better that way

If you do see them
You'll see the thick, heavy scars
All pink and tender

And you'll catch a glimpse
Of the stub of a pinkie
With smoothed-over ends

You'll stare at his hands
And wonder how it happened
And get lost in thought

While you are staring
You'll remember a murder
A year or so back

When a girl was killed
And her face burned with acid
To hide who she was

And then something clicks
As you look look into his eyes
You'll smile out of fear

But he won't smile back
See, he knows what you're thinking
He's seen it before

So don't turn your back
Now that you know his secret
Or you will be next
