Daily missive for Wednesday the 8th of November.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 8th of November.

Jack my boot
Brush me with tar
Feather my boa
Constrict my welcome
Call me a killer
It is in my genes
Blame my parents
Berate the past
For it is within me
To change it
Strap me down
Straighten my jacket
Shock my system
Give me a vest
Tie me in
I am your monster
Slap me in irons and
Hang me high
It is tradition
Make it a holiday
Find a chariot
Swing with me
Revenge is sweet
Until the reckoning
Kiss my cheek
There is a traitor
In all of us
If the price is right
I am not evil
Just a reflection
Look away now
Lest I see myself
In you.
