Cynicism Of Human Mind - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

The human is a frame befleshed
And furnished with a mind enmeshed
In tarantellic throws of thought.

Tormented by a jealous rage,
Suspicion builds a filthy gauge
To measure all imaginary rivals.

The sea of flagellating surface
Copulates without a purpose -
A climax in a storm reviled
That splashes dying lands beguiled

By 'Save the World'
And other sickly pleas.

    Honest and cutting. Cynicism is unhelpful, but so easy to slip into. (Report) Reply
