Garrulous Regent

Sitting
head in hands
watching headlines scroll passed
one t.v.
two t.v.’s
three…….
so many
with so many different stories
all saying
pointing to the same thing
proving to nations falling
warnings not heeded
ominous omens
lead to dissolution
lead to war
lead to nothing.
Saviour of the Century
cried upon the corner
magic to flow from fingertips
greatness shall reign
greatest sovereign in recent history.
Platitudes roll
spinning through air
translucent in truth
dust motes upon sunbeam.
Tears
mouth in melted moue
wailed anguish
whimpers
baby like tantrums….
People just don’t like him.
Everyone is out to get him.
He was great why could they not see?
Never to acknowledge
fault for disrepair
living in fantasy world
where all love and adore.
When faced with reality
with those not respectful
terrible twos in an elderly man
ugly sight
his vanity panned.

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.
