The Idiot Dust

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , on May 16, 2018 by dc

In the midst of the idiot dust,
Littered with rockets and rubble,
Shrapnel and guilt,

Slovenly creatures shuffle
With elastic skin and slideshows,
Trading in bent faith and pity,

A supremacy feasts behind smoke screens
And conspiracies spin like sub plots
On a rotten potter’s wheel,

A cyclical mould steady spreading,
A uniform pattern of lies,
As charlatans usher the white clouds

Whenever the chosen walk by.
