Ordinary People

And continuing with a dark theme to my writing, today's poem is a piece entitled "Ordinary People". Are people really Ordinary though?

Ordinary People

by Damon Lord



Ordinary People

Living Ordinary lives

Ordinary husbands

Beating Ordinary wives



And it's all so very Ordinary

On the Outside



Ordinary couple

Makes up and goes to bed

In the Ordinary morning

The husband is found dead



And it's all so very Ordinary

On the Outside



Ordinary murder

With an Ordinary knife

Ordinary stab wound

Took away the life



And it's all so very Ordinary

On the Outside



Ordinary prison

Ordinary cell

Ordinary inmates

Freedom from the Hell



And it's all so very Ordinary

On the Outside



Ordinary People

Living Ordinary lives

Ordinary husbands

Killed by Ordinary wives
