Cruel twist of fate

by

Randy Johnson

Brittany Murphy was this woman's name.
She had talent, beauty, fortune and fame.
She provided the voice of Luanne Platter on King of the Hill.
When people watched her perform, she gave all of us thrills.

I was shocked when she died on the 20th of December.
She was a great actress who everybody will remember.
She starred in many movies that included Just Married and Freeway.
When she died, millions of people were devastated on that awful day.

In 1991 she starred on an episode of Murphy Brown.
Hollywood won't be as good now that she's no longer around.
She entertained me and she entertained you.
It was a cruel twist of fate to die at thirty-two.

A 2nd poem about Brittany Murphy

by

Randy Johnson

She was a very beautiful woman, both inside and out.
She was one hell of a lady; that's what I'm talking about.
The world became a better place in 1977 on the day of her birth.
She married in 2007 and her husband was the luckiest man on Earth.

She starred in Drexell's Class, Almost Home, and Sister Sister.
She was a wonderful human being and people will Miss her.
She was a talented lady and she was very sweet.
I regret that the two of us didn't get a chance to meet.

It was very sad that the Lord decided that it was time for her to leave.
She was surrounded by loved ones when she was buried on Christmas Eve.
She was unique; there will never be another person like her again.
Millions of people are devastated because her life came to an end.

50 to 1 odds

by

Randy Johnson

My wife and her brothers gave me five grand to bet on a horse.
My brothers-in-law kicked my ass and my wife got a divorce.
They chose the horse because it was 50 to 1 odds.
They beat me so hard that I almost met God.
I accidentally put the money on the wrong horse when I placed the bet
As I count my bruises and missing teeth, it's something that I regret.
If you meet my ex-wife or her brothers, please don't put them a bet on a horse.
If you screw up like I did, you'll be gumming your food while you feel remorse.

(This is a fictional poem.)

Intoxicated driving

by

Randy Johnson

An entire family is dead and I'm the one to blame.
I drove while I was drunk and I'm filled with shame.
I drank too much while I was in that bar.
It was a big mistake when I drove my car.
While I was driving, I hit a stationwagen head on.
Because of me, those innocent people are gone.
I killed those parents and their three kids.
The pain is consuming me because of what I did.
Those kids won't have a life because I cut them down.
I am the one who deserves to be buried in the ground.
When the cops arrived, I was placed under arrest.
As I sit in this cell, I am miserable and depressed.
I wish that this was a nightmare but sadly it's real.
I learned the hard way that drinking and driving kills.

(I DEDICATE THIS FICTIONAL POEM TO ALL OF THE INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN KILLED BY DRUNK DRIVERS.)

My big buddy

by

Randy Johnson

It was very sad when your life came to an end.
You weren't just a cat, you were also my friend.
You became my cat after you were born in 2002.
You were good to me and I was good to you.
You were black, white and gray.
I miss you because you passed away.
You made me feel better whenever I got upset.
You were my big buddy and you were a great pet.
You were very pretty and friendly too.
It was a privilege to have owned you.

Serial killer

by

Randy Johnson

I was a serial killer and I killed many times.
For years the cops couldn't bust me for my crimes.
I killed all of those people for over a decade.
They begged for their lives because they were afraid.
I don't even know the reason why I killed.
I'm sick because it gave me such a thrill.
I killed eighteen women and three men.
Now I'm going to have to pay for my sins.
I was just arrested by the cops.
Now my killing spree will stop.

(THIS IS A FICTIONAL POEM.)
