Confessional Poem #2

by Jim Benz

In a dark room, under a single light bulb ...

Did you think you could get away with this?
I don't know what you're talking about.
Don't play dumb with me!
No one's playing dumb.  I don't know why I'm here.
Thackeray, see what you can do with this guy ...

Did you think you could get away with this?
Oh god no, not again, please, no, I'll tell you everything  ...

I don't think he knows anything.  Thackeray!
Thackeray, get him out of here.


Author's Note: I'm just playing around, trying to get back into acrostic mode. Suggestions for this are more than welcome.

One of the most creative acrostics I have ever read. And neatly written - If you hadn't said, I wouldn't have noticed. Indicative of quality (or slight of hand) :)

Very good indeed! You tie the acrostics so well with the content. My money's on Kayser Soze...
