Trenchcoat Song

English: Navy velvet trenchcoat

Trenchcoat covers
Neck against a chill
That slivers down the alleyway
All the way to hell
Frost upon the grass breaks
As stranger’s feet tread by
Players roll their dice to see
Who may live or die

High heeled, cool stilettoed
Crack the innocent’s back
Deaf now to the cries of pain
All these things they lack
Somewhere in their making
Deep within, gone wrong
All their victim’s treasures
Traded for a song

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    “That slivers down the alleyway….All the way to hell” Those two got me….think I have seen that alleyway. *shivers* A narrow escape. Loved it, Sis.

    Now you see, to me, that isn’t a trench coat. A proper trench coat should be one designed to be worn in the trenches of the first world war. You wouldn’t last very long against the bosch wearing a trench coat made out of crushed velvet at Flanders. Mind you, you probably wouldn’t last very long wearing a suit of armour either.

  3. I once wore the same trench coat for 25 years – but it never inspired anything as good as this poem

  4. This is lovely! You have such an awesome imagination! Wish I could write poems like you do!!!

  5. “That slivers down the alleyway
    All the way to hell” Love this line!
