Second Draft

Demonstrations,
Cars on fire,
A battle for power,

The shivers of time,

Goosebumps
And hindsight,

Human nature rotating,

The cantankerous cackle
And the rattling pockets
Of the men who made good
As streets burned
And sons died.

The bloodiest day
Of a fictional war,

Apocalypse
With a twist,

Lost heroes
And the gossip of gunfire,

The clatter of half truths
Cracking and snapping
The playwright’s
Drawn mind,

And the rippling gripe
That the things he hates most
Are the most true and humbling,

A history crumbling,

And he’s never been paid
To just lie.

  1. “That the things he hates most
    Are the most true and humbling,” Brilliant lines!
