Just all around Ill...;)

Illegitimate, Ill-mannered, Illegal, Ill-used, Ill-gotten & Ill spoken of…


Suffice to say I am Ill,

Both mentally and physically,

That goes without saying,

Throughout life to live I have been praying…


My parents were not married,

I burp and fart at the dinner table,

I do things that are not legal,

I have been used and abused,

I came from god knows where,

People do say of me that I am very unstable…


So when you think you are the worst,

Remember me and know that I am cursed,

I was born butt rather than headfirst,

The oxygen deprivation during my birth did produce in me my desire to do verse…

And lets be honest, I could do a hell of alot worse...

If you were born a prince of men
You'd do your thing.....and try again
Its good to know just who you are
Nowack job........just a bit bizarre
I see you harmless as a kitten
Addicted to the rhyme...well written
Your poems are funny........and a treat

THE LITERARY REVIEW “... Be warned, Zapinette's gems of insouciant wit tend to become infectious. This wise-child's deceptively worldly innocence takes the entire gamut ..
