Remittance of Evil

Screen
predominate
figures flicker
fast
slow
advance forward
rewind
this here
these shots we show
your world
your reality
your explanations
time to reap
that which you have sown.
Children have died.
You laughed 
power play
bringing others to their knees
corruption
gangrened 
all limbs
needed to be pruned
needed to be cut back
needed to be culled
to prevent further rot
from forming.
Colleagues
turn away
no longer willing
to play 
stupid game
lost you have
protest all you want
no returning from this.
Potted old man
humored 
no longer pandered to
sycophants fleeing
delusions
rended with reality
burnt
fires flaming
retribution has come
finding you wanting.

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
