I saw Todd Conaway’s assignment to make a poem of Twilight Zone titles. At first I tried pulling out titles that rhymed, to see if I could put them together into something that resembled a poem. Then I thought that would kinda forced and lame. Looking through the list, I saw a few lines that reminded me of one of my favorite psychotic dolls (Is he real?). This had been on my mind since I saw Christina’s awesome Invaders gif. So I put them all together into something that’s barely a poem, but it makes sense to me. Watch the tale (on Youtube, in three parts), and maybe it will make sense to you.

    Well, that fellow sure does look a bit frightful to me. And I think I kind of understand your poem. At least the third line of it anyway. I especially liked the third line of your poem. The other lines, maybe not so much.

    So. Do you have any friends that you call True Friends? True Friends are important and you should make sure that you have some True Friends.

    Okay. Bye.

    I think I have some true friends. I’m not sure if any of them are capitalized. I’m glad you liked at least one of the lines, because it’s better to be liked than otherwise.

    Actually there is an awesome connection here, bit the Zuni Doll episode in the Trilogy of Terror and The Invaders episode were written by the great Richard Matheson! So the connection is real and awesome, as you usually are Paul!

      Whoa – I remember seeing Matheson’s name at the beginning of the episode, and I knew he had a hand in the Trilogy, but I completely missed that connection. I must be slipping.

      • Jim Groom says:

        To be fair, they are all based on Matheson stories, but William F Nolan re-wrote much of them. Nonetheless, the connection is there, and I love it.

    I looked for rhyme possibilities too for a while. No go. I love that you have added the images as the page has more emotion.

    I think the Talky Tina gal is thinking she is in the peom. Remins me of the lines, “You’re so vain, I bet you think this song is about you”

    Some dolls.
