I Dream Of Conquest - Poem by Doom and Gloom

Watch me as I evoke fury
I’m walking the tightrope in my sleep
Watch me act as judge and jury
Cloaked in peace I slowly creep

Breached defenses, safe house cracked
Treaty signed yet I attack
Ally turns to mortal foe
Where life wont venture, dreams will go

Encouraged by lust for power and wealth
The seeds for carnage have been sown
A master race of myself
My isolated fear has grown

Breached defenses, safe house cracked
The people slain the city sacked
Ally turns to mortal foe
In blackened field where poppies grow

Outrage vented in my direction
Moral high ground has been lost
The people demand reparation
Conquest achieved, but at high cost

Breached defenses, safe house cracked
Defenders rally to attack
Ally turns to mortal foe
Within my dreams the blood will flow

    Sad....even dreams no longer...colourfully gay...all the strife, crooked world
    has left...in so many minds..............................

    Conquest of which you speak of here, is never possible when there is so much deceit. You may have won one battle, but you've sold your soul at it's expense, no one wins when this be the case. So sad, so very, very, very sad......! ! ! (Report)Reply
