Cold(hearted) Warrior


Poesy plus Polemics

aloof prodigy
tunneled under the spotlights
with grandmaster skills
undermining the walled
Kremlin prison of titles
ascending the cultural
throne of Jack Armstrong

the crown seemed to crack
his phenomenal mind
and he leapt from the pinnacle
right into vitriol splashing
the Jews and American life
even cheered nine eleven
and called for a coup

running country to country
the hands that had shattered
all claims to the royal board
capturing worship of millions
died on a cold day in Iceland
three people attending his grave
which was just fine by him
