Dark Ages

Justify
lies
tales
wrung so far from truth
head cocked
watching sweat drip
makeup bleed
all over collared shirt
slowly
world begins collapsing
look around
falling fast
minions with blind trust
lack of morals
found in the bedroom
of rich men
promising
reassurance
everyone still loves
greed is everything
stupidity the new law
get in line
he will let you lick his toe
to keep you complacent
keep you addicted
deadly accident
cannot look away
stunned
behaviour such as this
arrogant ignorance
baby bully
bruising basher
myopic minstrations
fitting for Middle Age despot
not 21st century politics.

Ashed Past

Come to me children of the streets
let me tell you
how this present came to mete
how lost we became 
so very lost 
time will tell if ever one can return.
Once upon a time
for every cautionary tale does begin
a man
so callous
so arrogant
decided that his birthright
was to rule the world.
Bluster
muster
his followers
from all walks
no one could understand
still today we shake our heads.
Craven
bullied his way
to the top
crony taught
black magic
called the Devil
deal was made
and poof…..
he had his every desire.
Despot
thrilled with considered power
doled out
punishment
death to those
who dared to contradict
who dared to try to wrest control.
Any deal with the Devil
fraught with clauses
contradictions
failed to read right
can end to detriment
to death of all
the world
the populace
destroyed for one vain little boy.
Enraged
clause enacted;
Act a baboon
be a baboon
off to the zoo with you!
Damage done
now we wait
life to return 
to abundance.
Until that time children of the night
children of the street
always remember
getting all you want
will always come with grave consequences.
