Review ‘A Day in the Death of Joe Egg’ Everyman Theatre by Tanica Psalmist

A Day in the Death of Joe Egg was strikingly powerful,
her disability & discrimination was inevitable.
Judgment and suffering; caused mental frustration
Her disability, was seen as an affliction.
Dad sincerely praying for tranquility and hope
Left little Joe Egg staggering on a tight-robe.
She looked through her life, like a horoscope.
Figuratively speaking, Joe Egg felt neglected.
For her heart was deprived and had never truly, been accepted.
Fragmented heart, for her parent’s shredded apart
Whenever he tried to instigate love making to his wife,
She would shake him of, and break him inside
Joe fought to be visible, but was restricted and strained
Her disability was a downfall, she was un- attentive, it pained.
Figuratively speaking her dad was ashamed
Having an unresponsive daughter, there was nothing he gained,
He felt like Joe, was a flaw, on the families name
Having still no luck in sex, bothered him in fright,
So began winding up his wife with deceptive lies,
Weakened his good intentions, for Joe and his wife.
Feeling jealous, getting less attention then joe,
So he looked for ways, so his daughter would go.
But since that weren’t occurring he plotted little Joe’s death
His thoughts were like poisonous gasses
And family friends were, interfering threats,
observing his life, like how a predator watches it’s prey
So in the end he packed up, escaping far, far away.
