Word of the Day Challenge #37 (Untitled Poem)

The stage
played out in front of the whole world
lies
half truths
abandoned midway
leaving the audience to ponder…..
credence is being delivered
given freely
to men
women
(hang your heads in shame)
who berate
bludgeon
tyrants
(not only the home grown)
carving up lands
territories
with practised ease
bloody butchery.
This conflagration
out of hand
growing higher
brighter
immorality is winning
virtue
kindness
morality
fade into the wood works.
(Lost
no one to witness the demise.)
Turn
pace the arena
count your steps
minutes
until entry is granted
into the lair.
Face the firing squad
answer for the good
heresy
words quoted without warmth
without meaning
become only…..
words.
Turn to leave
defeated
lost
unenvied
behind the curtain hid.
(Wait)
Lulled
sated on their gorged desires
sleep heavy eyes flutter
silent feet
whispers of death come riding in their ears.
Throw the match
bar the door
watch it burn
Hell has a circle to defend……
