The scabs and sores that
Plague my body are often
Worse in the springtime.
- Elliott C. Evans

In the late autumn,
When leaves wither and fall down,
My nose crumbles off.
- Elliott C. Evans

Like Job bemoaning
The loss of his family
I weep for my ear.
- Elliott C. Evans

Oh, no, leprosy
Armadillos can get it
I hope I do not.

Simon was leprous
He left long trails of organs
Boy, was that sucky!
- Doug DeCarlo

On a windy day
Guns are unnecessary
To blow my head off.
- Doug DeCarlo

Check extremities.
No summer sun can wake these
from numbing winter.
- Kurt Schaefer

Oh the fetid smell.
Dull senses alert too late.
Ulcers bloom with spring.
- Kurt Schaefer

Sure glad i don't have
Leprosy. That would really
Suck in the winter.
- Axe

In winter we play
Hockey except when there's a
Face off on the ice.

My life is Winter
Yet my soul is the Summer
My limbs are just Fall.

Breeze over the lake
See the ducks flutter and splash
Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate!

The weasels ate up
The parts of my body that
Died and fell away.

Jenny Craig you fool
Who needs a diet when your
Body falls apart.

She loves basketball
Since her illness she uses
Her boobs to dribble.

I would create more
But i must go catch a bus
Hope my self stays whole.

leper beach outing
salt water laps at their toes
floating out to sea

lepers at the beach
do not need sunblock lotion
wipe away the tan

Fall rain comes gently
pond ripples with falling leaves
fingers drop like stones.
- Greg Landrum

we are holding hands
our fingers intertwine -- hey,
come back here with that
- Andy Plotkin

morning, sun shining
coffee perks, toast is soon done
flesh makes tasty jam.

sex can be a drag
when you're afraid of leaving
your true love behind

reading haikus here.
i will blow chunks on the floor...
aha! found that finger!

I was bulimic
until my finger came off
while stuck in my throat

melted brie is yum
but it tastes much better when
i stir with his tongue

lepers laugh aloud,
"We have a quicker way than
bulemia diet."

i used to archive
the sick jokes on dan and eric
about pilot last remarks.

my good friend in need
asks me for a hand today
so I oblidged him.

headaches are so fun
someone pulled the dagger out
my head went with it
- Esther Filderman

My sores and pustules
Continue to produce filth
Much like this instance.
- Elliott Evans

the weather turns cold
"bridge freezes before surface"
blood swirls down the stream.
- Brian Harrison

Valentines Day gone
Hearts strewn all over the stores
One of them is mine

don't smoke any more
took a deep drag on a butt
then coughed up a lung
- Esther Filderman

decided to die
tried to slit my throat but my
head snapped & rolled off
- Esther Filderman

help, feline vulture
she climbs on my shoulder &
my arm falls away
- Esther Filderman

Poetry leprous
Falls from and with our fingers
Like leaves in Autumn
- jimz
