Word of the Day Challenge #44-Untitled Poem

Dance along the devil’s path
words
flip
detached
filled with no meaning
filled with no truth
a reality
built on sand stilts
crumbling before
angry voices
raised fists
tides rising
flooding
bending
eroding the foundation
that all stand upon.
Joker’s smile
twisted
broken
leering
stakes higher and higher
no one seems to care
no one seems able to fix
the problems
the disaster
that has become a part
of everyday life.
Capering clowns
tears drawn on cheeks
drawn
not shed
as bombs fall
bullets fly
children die
while villains
screech
dance a jig
proclaim
they are the targets
the innocents
while the world maligns
pummels
censure
their very worth.
Time is long
memories longer
keep plugging that dam
hoping all will be forgotten.
