Indignant Failure

Glassy eyed
malevolent prophesy
sit
growling
deep in fantasy
gripped by insanity
building
despot
bellowing for anarchy
blows
ceaselessly on fire’s blaze
incinerating
inciting
a deadly fuse.
Call to arms
desperate to retain
political reverence
despite
voices raised
fingers pointed
marking the way
ousted
betrayed
stolen
brays blonde ass
bayonets raised
take back
what is rightfully ours.
Silent
stone cold
friends no more
quick step back
quick evacuate
two meters
no longer enough
to escape
stench of failure
clinging
death suit
even
plot you do
sad
pathetic
little old man
time has come
for you run
hoping there shall be…..
no betrayal.

      1. You did, you surpassed yourself… your poems just get better and better, the imagery you give your reader is sometimes so precise and accurate in every detail it’s almost painful to view it. This poem had me ‘seeing’ every image you conjured up, clearly, concisely and relentlessly. Wonderful! 🤩🤩🤩

      2. I know, I know, I’m a lost cause with technology! I had a big desk clean up the other day and threw a load of different chargers in a bag out of the way. Guess who can’t remember where she put the damn bag? Laptop is dying, iPad is dying, phone is dead so thank goodness for my good old desktop PC! at least that never needs recharging! 😛 xx
