Forgive me if he's already been mentioned, but Shel Silverstein seems the obvious choice here. He's best know for writing hundreds of poems for children, but he probably wrote twice as many for adults--and its often difficult to tell which piece was written for which audience. He's dark, dark, dark...heck, anyone who'd write a poems entitled "Someone Ate the Baby"
(when he recorded this one, he belched at the end of it) probably has some issues.
