The stag

by davek

The stag limped out of the mist in the woods
Earlier he was game
But now he was no good
A staggering stag
A coat covered in mud
A shadow of his former self
Eyes red as blood
The world was all his
But now it’s forgot
After he was knocked unconscious
From the last shot
Fake plastic boobs
Ginger wig, eyes of sorrow
The poor bloody buggers getting married tomorrow

Oh no - the deer pursuit turned into a lament...
really good twist in your poem, my friend!
Now I'm left wondering
Why does everyone always
feel so sad for the groom....

Really enjoyed your poem, Mary Ann

    lol it's not meant to be sad Mary Ann it's a joke, people feel sorry for the groom because he's peer pressured to get into a state of drunkedness by his mates, take care my friend... Dave

A sporting hunter would be so kind as to end the poor creatures suffering. Wink

An enjoyable read with a good twist at the end and an appealing set of rhymes throughout.
