On one of these pages I have an incomplete poem. It is tentatively titled, “The Dysfunctional Chasticayn Family Tree”. I could really use some help with the first stanza. Even my first line works only as a second, third, or possibly fourth line. Since I am asking for help composing a poem about a fictitious family with no source material provided I will start with some inspiration.
The Chasticayn’s are modeled after those dysfunctional families like the Addams family, the Collins family of Dark Shadows, or the Munsters.
Now imagine a family like that running off to Mendocino County California to hide out from their extended family.
Here is the line to play with:
“The creepy crap hidden in the crypt of the decrepit family plot”
