A.J. Huffman


A PA moron, I mean man, was jailed
for stalking
a woman he thought was his ex wife.
He was mistaken
about the kids too. The woman’s real
husband gave a statement: he used to be
friends with the man who was
never married to his wife. The gifts
left on their porch for the woman
and imaginary children were taken
into evidence.

A.J. confesses: "I have always avoided the news. I don't read the paper, I don't actively watch the news. Why is a long story for another day. However, every once in awhile I catch bits and pieces of random news stories, and inevitably the inanity that comes from the human population never seems to amaze me. This poem was inspired from one of those news blips I caught back in July 2012. It made me laugh. It made me write."
