Future Unknown

dance on the greens
succubi leap
satyrs plies
jumble of horns
leading the lascivious
hidden behind the golden veil.
mask of solemnity
shown to the world
ripped free
drunk from the fountain of greed
sated on the bones of the poor
save for man’s glory.
Rumbles begin to grow
voices raised in dissent.
Daises beribboned in scarlet
thunderous condemnation
for the hordes
(peaceful protest)
dismissed as foolish
ignorant of truth.
‘How dare they compare
they have the strength
the inborn knowledge 
such as we
to make wrack and ruin 
of this glorious world’
Pious bastards.
Sanctimonious bitches.
Banal words spoken.
Hush the populace
this is the thought
unoriginal as it is.
Lay at their feet no longer.
Pull down pretenders
who would lay waste

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.
