    dotsWaiting Death Outdots

    You hooked me like a fish
    Reeled me in to the fire
    You branded my heart, forever yours
    And now you're all I desire

    Things like this happen
    Your eyes on the prize
    Cast it back when you're done
    Every tear dries

    No real harm done
    Like an unwanted stray
    Leave me on the corner
    Don't worry, I'll wait

    On to the next one
    I know you shop to keep
    But I would hold all bets
    The odds are getting steep

    That taming whip you have
    It leaves us all meek
    And thrown into the wild
    It's survival of the weak

    I wouldn't know how
    To move on if I tried
    How I survive is a wonder
    I only know to bide

    And ignorance may not be bliss
    But it's the best I've got
    The puppy on that corner
    Misses you a lot

      It would be good to sing. I almost heard the tune!

    Just a bit into the ballad, there is this image of the lady leaving a fish on a street-corner. Well, nobody will take it that way - but a fussy poet would get a few interesting thoughts about mixing metaphors, out of that one!

    I just been reading Dylan Thomas, who doesn't just mix metaphors he chops them and blends them. So to speak. Well, if he got famous, mixing metaphors can't be wrong. But sometimes you could get an un-intended effect?

    It isn't really a mixed metaphor either! Nothing mixed about it. But I still saw the fish getting dumped on the street corner. Maybe I'm a bit twisted.

      Well, I am going to share my thoughts on this one. First, this:

    And ignorance may not be bliss
    But it's the best I've got
    The puppy on that corner
    Misses you a lot

    I said aww. It sealed the deal for me. The foreshadowing was done well.

    Yet before that you had this:

    On to the next one
    I know you shop to keep
    But I would hold all bets
    The odds are getting steep

    a little hint of anger maybe? I wouldn't blame you...

    Either way, as I always am taking in strays I couldn't help but think one word clearly. It made me want to look whoever made you feel that way in the eyes and call them a [censored]!

      The line

    It's survival of the weak

    really stood out to me.
