Benedict Arnold Reborn

High above
in silver blue sky
rumbles the approaching death.
Unbeknownst to those below
living life
loving 
family 
children
husband and wife.
Innocence broken
shattered
incoming piercing scream
impact
cratered hole
body parts strewn
blood
overflowing cisterns
babies scream
left alone
orphaned
for what?
Call to arms you did
inciting
taunting…..
so proud to disregard
so proud to abuse
misuse
power
for to whom shall you answer?
You sanctify terrorism
your mouth moves one way
words coming go the other
there is no truth to you
there is no humanity
reprehensible actions
provoked by…..
Volatile vitriol spewed
greatness is not forthcoming…..
Fall to your knees 
beg for forgiveness.
The Ninth Circle of Hell
home to treachery and traitors
considered too tame for a beast such as ye….
A Tenth Circle to be built
to house a man 
who tore apart the world
to sate his desire for the Almighty…..
Dollar.
Corruption.
Adulation.
Destruction.
The list goes on
and on
and on.
Detailed
page after page
of immorality
hatred
racism
ineptitude
there is no end
to the torment begun
brought forth
left behind.
Your legacy
naught but a single sentence in the annals of history……
A narcissist who destroyed centuries of history in 4 years.
