Onomatomurder

Prompt Day #52: Fun with Onomatopoeia: How many weapons (or potential weapons) can you list that sound like what they are intended to do? (Silly example: Skil Drill). Make up brand names if you have to. Then write a poem or experimental prose piece based on this list. Or a story about a potential killer.

 Onomatomurder

Heavy falls the Thwack Hammer

Then the body to the floor

The buzzing of the bone saw

A halo made of gore

Zeal Drill dives into the eyes

A Hack Saw to the knees

Ten Little Indian fingers

Snipped neatly if you please

A tub of Sizzle brand acid

Takes each piece one by one

Plop, splash, hiss, and sizzle

Makes clean up so much fun
