War on Reality

Flick
Forked Satan tongue
Flick
Flagrant disavowal
Flick
Sudden outrage
Flick
Turn away
do not look behind the curtain
see the man fall
orange
green
purple
mesh
meld
joker’s garish grin
pompadour flouted
in defiance
of all that is natural.
Flick
Liar Liar Pants on Fire
Flick
Deranged
screaming spittle
words
not making sense
shock
suddenly turned upon
who knew
reality would so soon intrude?
Dodge
bullets sail past
small slight of hand
adjust tin crown
no one will knock
King Merry-Andrew down.
From pitted pedestal
extolled greatness
upon black death of civilization
a bleak nightmare
to be sure
if continued unchecked.

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
