Mishandle

Have you witnessed?

Have you heard the words

rolling from his tongue?

Chanting

pontificating

orating

while all stand

mouths agape.

Holy roller

shaking

convulsing

the spirits entering

as he mishandles

the snakes.

Shaking with mirth

(stunned at the audacity)

tears fall as humor is found

(fear and pain intertwined)

the testimony of a clown

(how did it come to this?)

hell bent on destroying

(reimagining a plutocratic society)

all that democracy has built.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
