” Cask of Amontillado – based on knowing nothing about it ” – everyday poetry 98

Cask of Amontillado


What is in a barrel

But the remnants of a man or woman’s wallows

Sorrows exchanged for an elixir to fix her

Or him of course


Is it fun in the barrel

Is it monkeys in a barrel

Is it hysterically runny from out of the barrel


Can’t seem to wrap my head around these sounds that came from the juice that poured out of the barrel


And soberly I do everything

So count me then as a zero if U must

And painful as it is


I indeed wished something else was in the barrel

That helped me to talk

To help me to walk

To help me to make it

If just down the block
