Tommy - you're on the money with the comment in Stalingrad, the resourcefulness and desperation of the rape victim is supposed to be evoked in the close of this poem. I have not mentioned whether the soldiers perpetrating this particular crime to be of any nationality.

War does things to people that takes away humanity from some people yet strengthens the spirit of humanity in others.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your comment although i wasn't sure what you meant by 'agreeing' or not? What with in particular? My eye caught something about mary bell somewhere on the internet so i decided to have a look-see at her story,what i have written is just based on the basic points of the news reports. I am intrigued by murder and what makes people do these sorts of things, find it really interesting lol x

Hi Ann,

I had hoped the nursery rhyme type thing worked! Thanks for your comments. I kind of do believe in evil as an 'living' entity but i think it's a sketchy area, particularly in a child so young. Does make me want to know more though. Look forward to seeing yours soon x

Hi Kath. I think it's very clever the way you have written this so that it sounds like a chant that kids might sing in the playground, like ring a ring a roses. There's a good book written ages ago by Gitta Sereny about Mary Bell. I think, for me, unless you believe in real evil as an entity in this world, you can't demonise a 10 year old child (and I'm not suggesting that you are.) That's just my own opinion and I'm sure many would disagree. I do agree that murder is fascinating. I just wrote a poem about Jack the Ripper actually!

Hey S!
Mary Bell is a real person, my eye caught something on the net somewhere yesterday and hey presto... She served 12 years but when she came out she was given a new name etc and hidden and went on to have a child of her own.The two boys she killed were no more than babies really. I have a sort of sick fascination with killers i suppose! Neilson being very intriguing lol xx

Lots of good lines in this, first three are very fine and the flick through the daily mirror. I thought it lost its way a little round about the black tendrils mark but an enjoyable read. Be even better if you used a spell-checker!

sorry to be a smug smart-arse Dave, but I dont have a private pension - I did have until crashbangwallop then I cashed it in & never regretted it. I'm self-employed so I can carry on as long as I wish - I might slow down a bit, but I dont want to retire as such. I do feel sorry though for all the folks who do have pensions, shares etc who just got a lot poorer through no fault of their own. B

I think poetry on the theme of eating our children, might open up a whole can of worms best left unopened LOL. However, I agree that it would be good to do this again - though I think monthly feature might be asking too much of people. Perhaps if we did it every couple of months, we might get a better response.
The cynic in me thinks that Pandora could never be topped - but I'm happy to give it a try - also to take suggestions on themes.
Something that lends itself to lots of interpretation ideally...

A big second to all these comments here! Isobel this has been great fun and Ive loved seeing how each poet has tackled this theme... each so different and each brilliant in its own way! Banksy I love humble pie myself...Ray ,like Isobel, Im willing to help resolve your question...Rachel Im not sure how we`d all deal with child canabalism but I` ll give it a try...Anthony nice to see you cringing before us all, but I agree we gotta do this again. I realise its a lot of work Isobel but its been so worthwhile I seriously think its worth continuing!

Good to see you posting Steve.
You paint a thoroughly horrible picture here - not the poem, but the character. I'm hoping it isn't based on someone real - though you must have drawn your inspiration from somewhere.
I think the bit about the beer and breast cancer sealed it for me.
Liked the legal imagery you slipped in - it all goes to build a case...

Yes - not easy to have fun or behave normally when you are in the public eye. I always remember that incident when someone in the crowd threw an egg at him and he tried to deck them one - was he the farmer? He was entertaining because he was more human than the average plastic politician.
Your poem illustrates that...

Great to see the comedy aspects of Pandora rippling on long after her official closure... such is life...

You sound a little like the white rabbit in Alice and Wonderland. You'll have to find something more worthy of puffing and panting over now Dave...
