Guillotine Raised

I knew
recruited
trained
entire plot planned
rich men
needing to right wrongs
dreadful deeds
shoveled into deep deep hole
history rewritten
to eradicate the fold.
Risen recklessly
seen to be the answer
resurrect a dying party
reassemble
order of aristocracy
head of the snake
cut one down
three more return.
Devil’s in the detail
how much of a fool
how stupid I mean
did they really think I am?
One way in
one way out
death comes to the one who dealt it
stunning blow
like hell I was going to fall
trapped
not me
always another way out.
Evil comes
evil goes
as I sight down
bead drawn
true evil though
will rise again
and again
until aristocrats realize
the plebeian will always win
their time
no more.

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.
