Joe & Ivy

written by: Chloe Gilholy



Poor Mr Joe Davis
No matter how hard he tries
He can’t stop sinking into the abyss
Where nobody hears his cries

His life slips through his fingers
Swallowed by the devil’s brands
The monster still lingers
On his bloody hands

Poor Mrs Ivy Davis
A Swedish babe barely thirty
Oblivious to her own bliss
Vomiting her natural beauty

An obsession with anorexic art
She turns to her friend Bulimia
It drives the sweethearts apart
But Joe always had a grotesque idea

If the paintings could talk
And the rotten flesh write
All the secrets would begin to walk
To the Queen of Maggot’s delight

Joe plans Ivy’s rebirth with glee
His quiet haven truly disturbs
His executioner is the cat lady
who gives him what he deserves
