Throne of Ashes

Google eyed
lips twisted
snarling threats
each needle prick
another small death
another small drop of blood
to sate the earth.
Hungry
reaching for safety
knowing that there is none
that there will be no last minute rescue
brought this upon yourself you did
with all that silly play acting
thinking you knew……
Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha
Do you hear that?
Audience howling at your stupidity
watching wry humor
your downfall brought about
thought you did
that a fool kept his silence
while the righteous…..
The Righteous
proclaimed from heavens high
the appointment of god’s son
to lead us back to the fold.
Spoke you did
nary a moment went
that your mouth was not moving
slipping lies
sliding passed the truth
murky shades of grey
tumble to your grave.
There is a hierarchy 
you thought to surpass
ascension bought
and paid for
without struggle
without knowledge of reality.
Good-bye
so long
adieu
fall from sight
forgotten…..
A joke 
dancing upon the lips of…..
everyone.

    1. Thank you so much. Lately I have been getting image flashes of what I want the poem to say within using the word of the day challenge and my own private one which is I need to use the actual word of the day in the poem. I find I am getting more creatively darker. And I am loving it. 😊 I appreciate not only ypu reading but also leaving a comment. 😃😃
