Revealings - Poem by Vicki Acquah

I had to bury a friend today
kill them off in my plot.
I thought he was a rooster but
he was quacking like a duck.
O'great tiger; You too have deceived
me. I hear no mighty roar
only the mewing of a demented
pussycat with dubious mind.
I had to bury a friend today
who could not decide what he stood

    Talk of cutting off from an individual who is unprincipled, I guess. Good write. Keep on writing (Report) Reply
