Snake Oil

Dancing with the devil
razor’s edge
rabid eyes
fires rage
desperate desire
promises made
time to conquer
time to rape
lips revel
nattered teeth
garish delight
torture many
for your sickness
sated only 
with death of your enemies
slaughtered by Captain Taint.
Whispers upon the wind
change is coming
death is nigh
not for common man
head down
upon golden dais
god like reign
thunder roars
lightening strikes
desperation coils
stench in air
done for
run and hide
time has come
for new tides.

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
