Dear Leader

If your freedom
Is walking round
Broken glass parks
As the dark spits it’s venom
All over your brow,

How is it
Your visits
Are met with dog barks?

And why is it
Your wow is a factor
Unsparked?

  1. What a great piece! Concisely packed with endless meaning.

  2. Wow! Sometimes they do not hear the dog barks because their guards took care of it already 😦

    Fantastic, sophisticated piece. And so very dark. Loved it!

  4. Interesting way of telling about bad leadership, centred just in 4 negative inputs: broken glass, venom, dog barks and unsparked. And let me tell you, I just love Bendedspoon comment. I feel the same. 🙂
