Excellent Dean. You may have been inspired by Jimi's dream, but the macabre is your handiwork. haha
I have a good friend who is a professional clown. I don't think I will share this one with her. (smile)

Excellent rhyme, meter and alliteration for a very smooth read. Vivid, creepy and horrifying imagery .
I once dated a mortician. My friends were mortified. hehe He was really nice but I couldn't handle all the jokes from my 'friends'.

Well done Dean.

Blessings
Janet

My goodness now 'that' was a dream.

I enjoyed the rhyming scheme and the flow and meter. Very easy to read, the poem gains a life of it's own as the reader is dragged down the page unable and unwilling to stop reading.

Excellent presentation... ~Mel~

I got a kick out of this Dean, although I hate clowns and the mention of the "hounds of heel" got me, also. I call my daughter's dog (affectionately) "The Hell Hound." Now, I may have bad dreams tonight because of this, but it is incredible as a work of art. As ever, well done. Bruce.

The story was as amazing as it was horrifying. You pulled out all the stops in this one. The poetry was pure brilliance as it flowed on perfect iambic heptameter full of inline rhyme and incredible imagery, enhanced with gruesome graphics. Bravissimo!

This was an absolutely perfect piece. I could not find one thing wrong with it. The imagery you used is impeccable and your choices of pictures complemented it perfectly. I have read this poem several times now and I still find myself just as intrigued as the first time. It tells such an amazing story and I truly am amazed. This is the level of work I aspire to create someday. I'm only 15 now, but I hope someday my work will be able to rival pieces half as wonderful as this. A great example of what this site is all about. Amazing work. God Bless.

Quite a story a special treat for kids at Halloween, thought-provoking statements compelling in interests: a journey into a mind and its believed horrors. A splendid read with Reaper swing intentions reader will love.

Kissed by death, lucky you. Wow, this is so perfect for halloween. I don't know if you are aware of it or not, but here in Georgia, there have been many stings of creepy clowns standing on the side of the road or edge of some woods. They haven't done anything yet, but there are lots of people creeped out about it. I have been fooling around with my wife and daughters about. This will be the perfect next step. Hehe. I loved the lesson learned with this and it should make us think twice about taking things that don't belong to us. Once again you have masterfully sent chills down the spine. Can't wait to share this one with the family. Best wishes.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review this poem, Eric.
    I apologize for my rather lengthy delay in responding.
    Don't think for one moment that it's not because I don't appreciate it--I do! It's just been really crazy around here of late.
    I can't take all of the credit for this one, with the exception of writing it. Our own Jimi (jlsavell) provided me with the inspiration for this by sharing her dream with me. I changed it around quite a bit, of course, but she still gave me the idea.
    So, having said all of that, thanks so much again for your thoughtful comments and very generous six stars.
    I deeply appreciate it!

Well written poetic version of a nightmare that would keep me up for several nights.
It shows the effect on your eternal life of doing bad things.

I like the use of internal rhyme to keep the poem flowing along.

Keep writing.

Joan

I was only going to give a five for this Dean, but I felt like such a cheap skate, the thought and time that you put into this work is worthy of applause. Clowns and cadavers, as Dorothy would say "Oh My!".
