And He Shall be Named…..Emperor

Slow it began
subtle shading
more grey
less black
less white
imperceptible
when realized
too late it shall be.
Justice
misplaced
lies
manipulation of truth
gross over-reaching
abandonment of fundamental law
allowed to go unchecked.
Treasuries looted
gold absconded
look the other way
loaded in plain sight
drones watching
dead eyed televisions
reporting
another loss
another shortage
the world is lost.
Rally the circus
clown load of car
watch
self-appointed king 
rise.
Folly
just a joke
history has been forgotten
thus
bound to be repeated
fires roaring
flames screaming
new world order
the time has come.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.

  1. Can I ask a question? Do you do your poems in another editor then copy/paste onto your blog? I can’t ever get my poems to line up right in the WordPress editor, why I’m asking. Good poem and image btw! 🙂
