Rhetorical

Tread carefully

words spoken

actions taken

are not easy to forget

when used as weapons

to destroy

to raze

to belittle.

Saccharine sweet

falling from sadistic lips

mouthed insincerity

practiced

meaningless

tear down those who offer nothing

to further you…..

your agenda

your need for world domination.

Emptiness

hollow

do they plug you in at night

downloading program after program

on how to exterminate

projects

people

countries

to further decay

black rot seen reaching out

spreading like a plague.

Wonder if your following knows

realizes

understands…..

You do not believe in them.

You do not believe them capable.

Hot headed

easily manipulated

pointed

used

furthering an agenda

of dissolution.

Detractors

cases built showing abuses

suddenly gone

torture

pain

death

devastation.

Witches cackle

curses follow

the path your have bored

foolhardy at best

ruination of the world

dancing as Nero played his fiddle.

Abject horror

bombs reign down…..

Today’s tomorrow

desolation

lifeless

what you have done

cannot be undone

are you ready to live with that?

No Escape

Bright lights
illuminate puddles
splashing through
running
must get away
escape the pain
the devastation
the war between
heart and mind.
Pontificate
sharp barbs
wicked hooks
sheer horror
look into the mirror
devil’s playground
war between good and evil.
Mourning tweed
monsters peer beneath
putrid breath of society
chained
mated
always disbelieved.
Blood red
river flaying the banks
slick terror
guns have found their way
onto the streets
into the hands
necessitated
martial law
trying to protect…….
There is no protection
there is no relief
our time
your time
their time
it has come…..
murderous rumble 
vile chant
war is coming
there is no escape.

War came to Fairy Land

When war came to Fairy Tale land
it was a sight to see
none knew what to do
or
who was against who?
Tooth Fairy was top dog
no longer doing the work
sending out minions to collect teeth
while she sat
eating bonbons
getting very fat.
As everyone knows
the kinder you are to your employees
they will do what you want
when you want 
without question.
(Well some small questions)
Grumbles began to rumble
dissatisfaction
at an all time high
revolution being planned in plain sight
at tavern tables
polishing rotted teeth
building another wing on the Tooth Castle.
There was going to be trouble
this was true
they did not know how to go
or who they should see.
He came flying in on a wonderous carpet
colors of white/pink/blue
sat upon stools in taverns
hastening along the mumbles to grumbles
to outright mutiny.
As everyone knows
once rebellion does begin
once armies begin to amass
there is no turning back.
One General to the other
there will be no suing for peace.
This peculiar war
waged between Tooth Fairy
and
Toilet Paper Fairy
(a new kid on the block)
became one for the books
as teeth arrows flew
toilet paper bombs smashed the line.
When all the dust settled
Tooth Castle knocked down
up went one made solely of
you guessed it…..
toilet paper.
Soon teeth minions were turned
toilet paper carriers they became
where the work did not include
trying to steal the teeth of small children
leaving little in return
except for maybe some bad dreams.
As toilet paper carriers
they were the delight of all kingdom comes
saving more than one bottom
from a nasty plight.
***Toilet Paper Fairy is the fairy who provides you
     tiny scraps of toilet paper when the roll has run out.

Untitled Poem #3

Mirror Mirror on the Wall
show me please
how this day will fall.
Grim Reaper dances through the streets
pockmarked
pitted
cratered
scent of death in the air.
Words were thrown
gauntlet down
little boys playing big boy games
never knowing the terror that would abound.
Seer
tears streaming down her cheeks
sits high upon the mountain
safe
secure
no fall out here
watching the destruction of this world.
Words were spoken
they came to be
no one was saved
for no one would heed.
Mass destruction
madness bred into the lines
never again shall mankind move forward
destroyed by the pettiness
of tiny little men.

New Era

Bleak
grey
uniform in concealing
army waiting in the woods
focus on the enemy
even if this is a war
that should never have been.
Flacid lips
propoganda
whispered in our ears
turning us
creating within
a battlefield
mired with land mines
broken body parts
a giant war machine at work.
Wondering how we got here
watching the world burn
leaders of all nations
violent
unable to bring peace to the table.
Mockery has been made
of the time all once knew
as savagely
a new era is born
of blood
of madness
of leaders
who no longer care.

As Simple as That

Gather round my pretties 
for a tale I have to tell:
A time there was once
when murder most foul
occurred not daily 
but at times hourly
in this kingdom 
of warfare and feuds 
the long forgotten yesteryear.
Ha!
Forgotten yesteryear?
More like a reality to this day.
Feuds are larger now
scaled into wars
taking over not towns
but countries
while demigods are fashioned
by wealth
by how often their name is in print
by the amount of followers on social media
not by the quality of their honor.
Time has begun to unravel
threads are being cut
as fiefdoms crop up
starving
enslaving
all people who stand to them
abusing their rights
their children
their wives
to make them bend to knee.
Out of the darkness
the renegade will ride
a steed of iron and ice
seeking out the ones claiming glory
and making them go away.

Megalomaniac

With flashing red eyes
drool upon his lip
maddened by the frenzied crowd
he stands upon the dias
awaiting his future.
Disregarding fair play rules
he raged
he frothed
he made secret deals
to undermine the truth
which all were to live by.
Enemies were made to disappear
friends were pulled in close
there is no middle ground
only two groups
one had better pray
should they find themselves
on the Enemy of the State list.
he incites riots
rage for those who disregard
his blatent lies
while holding his hands out for more…..
stroke his ego
make him feel like a god
(note the little g)
time will come when he will fall.
