Serenity At Last

Tick tock
hear that clock
count down
one
two
three
wash away sins
so you thought
bathed in innocent blood.
Slaughtered
women
children
old
young
boundaries
none known.
Finger on the trigger
maniacal laughter
buttons
four
five
six
pressed
with juvenile delight
lighting up elevator
all stops
never full
like the mind
rotting within
glowing corpse
grotesque mouth piece
shouts
branding traitors.
Silence falls
blankets of purity
reign ended
reins passed
collective breath
held so long
released unpent
let the healing begin.

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.
