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.

    1. Thank you. I appreciate your reading and commenting. I actually try not to watch news because there is so much terrible going on and I want to not be dragged down by it all. It hurts me when I read about the world today and watching as men in power are becoming self serving tyrants and everyone else pays for it. The fact everyone is getting into bed with everyone else who furthers their wants and immorality. I feel this so much.

      1. I totally agree. I cried reading accounts of more senseless deaths and for what? Honestly I wonder would it make a difference of we quit noratizing the killer by refusing to acknowledge him. But to solely write about the victims. And no open court or any news coverage. I do not want to understand the killer I want to mourn the loss of innocent lives and celebrate the courage and heroism of all involved. I am on my soap box I will get down. I mean I am Canadian what right do I have to espouse my ideas?

      2. I completely agree……….we need to not show anything about the evil person, this is what they live for, to be noticed, recognized and by giving no attention to the evil to focus solely on the lives lost, what society has lost because they are no longer with us and all the amazing people who work to help heal and mend those who are injured.
