False Vaticinate

Deep in the forest
cross lawns
bred green
house of white
broad expanse
at your back
tiptoe through the roses
shadowed glance
no one is following
no one really cares
off you go
trout in hand
to feed the wild cat.
She sits
brooding
fingers tapping the orange ball
shaking
whacking
slap to the side
damn thing
appears not to be working
better come up with something
for here comes the giant
treading
stomping
on all in the way
petulant child
look over here
at the shiny ball.
Seat yourself before her
eyes upon the prize
pay the piper
to take out the rats
never guessing
you set your own trap.
She smiles
eyes glazed by smoke
hiding globe
from beady eyes
grinning
ready to pander
you
ready to win.
Domination
wars
money
power
devastation
all foretold in your future
grin
murderous eyes
the list begins.
Paid in silver
disappeared in the night
when truth outs
she is revealed to be
failure is yours
there is no doubt
living in a septic dream world.

Rats & Sinking Ships

Palpable…..
everyone sees it
hanging in the air
taste it
bitter on tongues
twisted lips
broken dreams
hurts to discover
one is not as great as the other.
Truly thought
did you
decimation of life
cruelty to humans
blatant patronizing
with tyrants
small men
afraid to fail
bullies to the end
hatred
bred by your words
your own actions
you thought
nothing untoward
behaviour you exhibited.
Rats
abandon ship
water rushing in
breath of relief
even as you dispute
you have lost
time has come to pay
for sins wrought.
One little piggy…..
two little piggy…..
three little piggy…..
all sycophants
will be made to pay
bled a nation
upon own interests 
not sure 
that you can run
very far.
