The Tyrant's Sonnet Poem by Alex Gomez

The Tyrant's Sonnet



Upon the throne, a tyrant reigns today
The toll of bloodshed in his wake, severe
From kings to poor, he watched as they were slain
In our subconscious, laws for man adhered.

And next to him, his queen be damned as well
Beleaguered nations witness cities burn
The queen, she sneers while families say farewell
A single lesson, Mankind failed to learn.

So is it fair to say we’re not oppressed?
It seems we welcome king and queen alike
Have we devolved and opted to regress?
We grasp the whip and are the ones who strike.

The King and Queen Indifference plague our lives
Within us all, this scourge, it does derive.
