Dark Ages

Justify
lies
tales
wrung so far from truth
head cocked
watching sweat drip
makeup bleed
all over collared shirt
slowly
world begins collapsing
look around
falling fast
minions with blind trust
lack of morals
found in the bedroom
of rich men
promising
reassurance
everyone still loves
greed is everything
stupidity the new law
get in line
he will let you lick his toe
to keep you complacent
keep you addicted
deadly accident
cannot look away
stunned
behaviour such as this
arrogant ignorance
baby bully
bruising basher
myopic minstrations
fitting for Middle Age despot
not 21st century politics.

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.
