Evil Rising Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Evil Rising

Rating: 4.5

It rises
like poison ivy
up walls of humanity

Evil is stalking
our minds
and our sanity

We must become one
to stop the evil rising
join together as one nation

I like the form of this poem, and the way that the rhymes are more implied than literal. Its brevity also serves it well, keeping it focused.
