Mr. Movies

 i.

this
is
no
ordinary corpse —

this is bud the chud

he’s a half-dead
decomposing humanoid —

the result of a military experiment
gone haywire

a botched re-activation.

bud’s
turning everyone into a chud

now the kids,
the army,
the police & the fbi
are hot
on
his
trail

before the entire town gets
chudified.

this
chud’s
for you.

 

 

ii.

a blood-thirsty gang of punked-out bikers,
lust crazed sex-weasels,
a putrid, flesh-eating slime monster in the basement —

just another school day … at tromaville high.

highly radioactive sludge seeps onto campus,
discipline crumbles,
morals go out the window —

mega-volt rock ‘n roll madness takes over the student body.

the mutant organism in the school basement continues to grow
& so does the virulent outbreak of bizarre & violent behavior.

it’s a crash course in genetically deranged humor
for the kids & creatures of the class of nuke ‘em high.

 

 

iii.

in the sleepy college town of crescent cove,
the killer klowns have arrived –

armed

with popcorn guns
exploding candy boxes
projectile cream pies
& an insatiable appetite.

as the horrible harlequins
begin their onslaught,
the future looks grim.

planet earth looks like a buffet meal
for the killer klowns from outer space.

 

 

iv.

faster than a spreading germ

it’s the first superhero
from new jersey.

he french fries his foes
dry cleans the dastardly —

watch out, bad guys,
it’s melvin.

transformed from wimp to warrior
by a dip in a chemical pool,
melvin battles corruption & crime
in a small
american
town.

he was 98 lbs of solid nerd
until he became
the toxic avenger.
