Dr. Dedman- A Poem

Anonymous's picture

How I miss Dr. Dedman.

The man was quite kind to us.

He liked to make us feel all better.

And he had a really sensitive hand.

When we were feeling really blue,

He'd touch us and make us feel all better.

Touch us where, you ask, Mr. Judge?

Well, in our special place.

Why are you frowning, Dr. Dedman?

Did I say something wrong?

Oh that's right, Dr. Dedman...

You said not to tell anyone.

I'm so sorry, Dr. Dedman,

fo telling everyone,

But I don't get it Dr. Dedman.

We were just having fun!

You touched me in that special place

and made me feel all happy.

Is that so wrong, isn't it grace?

He didn't get nothing from all my happiness!

Isn't that right, Dr. Dedman?

Dr. Dedman?

Where is he going?

To the 'lectric char?

Oh, okay.

Hmm...

A sudden interest in poetry, or are you trying to push stuff off the front page?

A sudden interest in poetry,

A sudden interest in poetry, actually. Why would I- Oh.

No, actually, I just read an Edward Gorey poem and was sudden;y inspired.

I'm not pushing that stuff

I'm not pushing that stuff off, I'm deleting it. Annihilating the stupidity of my hissy fit.

It's actually a picture

It's actually a picture drawn by Edward Gorey himself, part of a larger illustration for the book I quoted below.

A is for Amy who fell down the stairs, B is for Basil assaulted by bears.
