Poem: "Heroin" by Robert McDermott

Robert McDermott

Insidious thief

Stealing from family
To get their daily


Another overdose
Comes so close

Mother weeps before sleep
Stashes her keep

Heads nodding
Feet plodding

All 3 brothers gone
With needles in their arms

I didn't need a revelation
To resist temptation

No urge
For that scourge
