Word of the Day Challenge #44-Untitled Poem

Dance along the devil’s path
filled with no meaning
filled with no truth
a reality
built on sand stilts
crumbling before
angry voices
raised fists
tides rising
eroding the foundation
that all stand upon.
Joker’s smile
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
not shed
as bombs fall
bullets fly
children die
while villains
dance a jig
they are the targets
the innocents
while the world maligns
their very worth.
Time is long
memories longer
keep plugging that dam
hoping all will be forgotten.

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
