Raped By Grandeur - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Raped by grandeur...
And images too pomped and circumstanced,
These gold leafed lifestyles
Have slit the throats of those who chose them.
Bartering their presence
To deplete and bleed their own!
Those they ignored...
Living in shacks with dirt floors.
Those who are poor
With sad faces behind closed doors!
As diamond dripped whores sip champagne,
And campaign to lead their flock!
Soon their eyes will open wide...
When their stature begins to crack,
Rock and drop!
They can not remain atop...
Since weapons and wars made by them,
Will cease economies like theirs and stop!
Goes the fish out of water!
