The Story of Corrine 1

Corrine’s father, Samuel,

Beat her when she cried,it-hurts-so-much_2173717

Though she was only three years old.


He was a harsh,

Cruel sod,

Who was forgiven by the priest.


Father Mendel, the slimy,

Cared not for children,

But only for men and Scotch.


Corrine remembered these two

And drew their pictures for herself.

When she could write, she added their names.


Thus, began her journal

Of men who had wronged her.

They would pay in later years.

The Curse of Corrine

His vapid mouth!

Mendel shot her a glance

That ripped her soul

Into bits

No larger than confetti.

Corrine dissolved into

Glutinous blobs

Of manically despairing

Woman who was wronged.

But then she pulled

Herself together and

Slapped the bastard

Into tomorrow’s hedge trimmings.

Corrine was cursed.

Cursed to be the strong bold Woe-Man

Of Legend!
