The Why Daddy

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , on April 19, 2016 by dc

Your life is
Greased tupperware,
Bent chicken wire,
A tick out of time,
More a swipe.

Your ambition is
A wheelbarrow,
A constant camel,
The old kitchen cabinet
Your granny stacked high.

Your dreams are
Dank disappointments,
Stuttered lights on a highway,
A source of excuses
In a wet muddy pit,

And the dangerous things
You achieve in the darkness
Seem attractive
To idiots
And rogues.

Your rhetoric
Prises war wounds,
Gets high on blame and fear,
In the bellies of your many beasts
Swim streams of bitter tears.
