I once chanced upon a random poetry challenge, the idea of which was to compose a poem based upon a stated nonsensical title. This was the somber result.

Purple pickles, green hotdogs, rainbow ladybugs:
jolly dancing wallpaper friends in a child's innocent room,
fanciful picnic pals prance and play,
to soothe the dreams of a sleepy princess...

Mute cartoon witnesses to hard dark violation,
the stinking stealthy Evil blackening forever
one small guiltless life.

faded hanging tatters in an old condemned house,
crumbling to forgotten dust near a gray grave
where rests, at last, the sad reclusive spinster...
