Chapter 2 - The Bet

A series of poems telling the story of my character Milt, the man with a television for a head. My friend and I are working on turning it into a rock opera too, so that'll be cool...

Chapter 2 - The Bet

Chapter 2 - The Bet
They sat at a table and began to discuss
About this strange being, their voices all hushed.
The first youth said to his peers that just maybe
He was born TV and all like a natural baby...
The second one scoffed and told them with a smile
That this being had been made via Frankenstein style,
But the creator had no good heads just lying around,
And he died before a proper head for his "child" could be found...

She sat at a table across from the lot
When she spoke up and told them what it was that she thought.

Who had been horribly injured and destined to die.
To save his life desperate means were essential,
But the surgery was odd, and must be kept confidential.

Her sudden intrusion appeared much like a threat,
So the third youth jumped in and he made her a bet.
He would give her some money of quite a high sum,
If she asked this weird being from where did he come.

She accepted his challenge, and then they made a plan
For her to confront this TV-headed man...
