Death’s Misery: Poetry Time With Tim

Greetings and salutations, faithful followers of this blog! I’m Timothy Scott Purvis and this is the next offering of Story Time With Tim only with poems. At the beginning of the year, this will be returning to Story Time With Time. I’ll be sharing with you a story, a novel even, that I once wrote for my wife. If you’ve been following along, you mind have an idea of what that story is. If you haven’t, well, you’ll just have to wait until next year to find out!

In the meantime, let’s get a little advertisement for my main site on Amazon going. Yeah, I know, nobody likes ads. Yet, nobody will be encouraged to check out some writing material on a personal author’s site otherwise. I should know. I have barely any traffic on my site so I need to increase awareness. As such, let’s do this!

I would appreciate if you have Kindle or even if you want some paperback goodies if you’d head on over to my page and maybe show me some love there. I mean, if you’ve been reading a while and see something you like, wouldn’t you like to have it in your personal library? I have some cool short stories available for cheap. Also Tales From A Strange Mind that collects my short stories (there’s also a Kindle edition but, for some reason, Amazon wouldn’t let me link them together) , Tales From A Strange Mind II which collects my old novellas, Red Star Sheriff (Which also has a Kindle edition but Amazon, am I right?) my first novel ever released, though, yes, it does have some grammatical errors and drags on for way too long, sigh. But I still love it and I will be writing a follow up sometime within the next few years. I have a collection of my poems called MisAligned: The Heart Waxes Poetic which collects my old poems but not some of my newer ones included those flash fictions! I’ll probably do that in the future as well. And if you love the perfectly inane, why not check out my Star Cloud scripts presented in book form? Star Cloud The Original Scripts. Another one where Amazon was being difficult with me in connecting the Kindle and PB versions. Still, the paperback they let me sale for cheap and it’s well worth a look if I say so myself. Or, if you don’t want to click on individual links (all of which will take you to my author’s page anyway), just click on my author’s page directly by tapping my name: Timothy S Purvis See for yourself what all I’ve published since I began this venture in 2016.

I mean, if you like my work, of course. No pressure. Just trying to find my way in this world without working menial tasks and suffering physical and mental issues as a result. If only I could merely stay home and write. That would be my most epic fantasy brought to life. Well, if you don’t want to do that, you could also donate to my cause down below after all is said and done. It would help. You know, if you liked what you saw and all. Up to you. I don’t have a lot of reviews on my materials because of low sales. I mean, very, very low sales. In the single digits. Right now, I have to rely on Pubby for reviews and those people only read your synopsis and recap it for a five star review. I want honest opinions. Not mean ones, but honest. So, if you ever find yourself buying some of my work, I’d certainly appreciate some feedback. Again, up to you.

Alright, now, without further adieu, a poem based on my short story Death’s Soliloquy. A tale in which the grim reaper challengers God to who is going to Hell and why. Ridiculousness ensues. This poem is shorthand of that short story. Why? I needed another poem for class and didn’t know what else to do. So, this happened. It isn’t great but, it isn’t bad either. So, hope you enjoy and read to you again next week!

Death’s Misery

Oh you silly


      of a boatman!

      ferrying the damned for eternity

      crossing the Styx in contempt


in your revulsion of humanity and its stench


how you challenged Jehova

      and miscalculated your wager with the Creator

how do you like cleaning those toilets

Mister Reaperman

So brings us to the end of another week of Story Time! Come back next Friday for another offering and trust me when I say, actual Story Time With Tim will be returning in a big way next January! Read to you again soon!
