Consumer


Sliced, diced,
shredded, chopped,
fried brains, sauteed thoughts,
mixed with the biting vinegar
of foul abuse.
The kind that strikes fear,
and sows perfect demons,
larger than life.
Clipped wings, then
into the bitter winds
and storms of simple days, pushed.
Split minds and fractured hearts,
injected with unnatural broths.
How else to fight these,
these devils
they grew inside,
them.

    When I think of the word SHELTER I envision it to mean safety, warmth and security....sadly for many this is far from the case of what it means to their life. How broken down is society to have to SHELTER in such tragic terms. Your poem shouts out to be heard! Peace (Report) Reply
