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.

Gravid Remembrances

On days like this
grey
overcast
sullen clouds
leaden tears about to fall
you never fail
to stroll through my mind.
No longer with tears
no longer with fear
rage
simmers
low beneath the surface
you will be bled.
Gargoyle keeper
shrine to the devil
lashed to beam
broken skin
lacerations
shredded skin.
Your hell
my nirvana
those screams
music
pealing for eternity.
Covered in crimson gore
teeth white in rictus
insanity laced laughter
echoes through the cavern
as I dance
’round your corpse
satisfaction
finally mine.
