Master of None

Derision
written on my face.
Disgust
as I watch
as I listen
to you whine
to you plead
to you escape culpability
for the actions
that has destroyed so many.
Tear down reality.
Tear down truth
Tear down justice.
This shall be how you are remembered.
History will waste no time on you.
A mere footnote.
A buffoon.
Simpering
flirting
pursuing disaster.
Clown of the courts.
You do not see. 
You refuse….
unable to hear
the muted laughter
the scorned words
escaping sideways
from the lips of your confidants
focusing on illusions
focusing on the madness of your own mind.
Expect me to applaud?
You are nothing.
You are not the great hero
you have built
portrayed
believe yourself to be.
Little man
thought to be easily lead.
Turns out ‘they’ were wrong.
You are not easily lead.
You do not listen to reason
believing in your own invincibility.
Time is come
you will be done
cheers heard at your fall.
You are no Julius Caeser.
Nero you be
playing the fiddle 
while the world burns
at your feet.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

  1. Wow! There is a lot of anger that has surfaced here and been thrown out. You have written well, and I like the two voices (I always tell you that). I wondered what brought it all to the surface? It is of course none of my business if it was personal 🙂
