Word of the Day Challenge #110-Untitled Poem

‘Brilliant.’
‘Saviour’
‘Leader’
‘Handsome’
‘Savy’
‘Sauve’
Lauded
list of adjectives
used to describe
blatant flattery
power grabbed
held on tight
know that to lose
means a loss
ego taking a blow
pushed over edge.
Private armies
amassed upon concrete walls
guns pointed
at masses of public
calling for change
calling for life
calling for equality.
Ignominious
ramble
fantasies built
delusions fed
time has come
to erase
depraved kingdom.
Televised
chased with more than two syllables
a moron
does you make.

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.
