Reveal Your Face

Crawl out of your peeping hole 
and face me like a man
You have been hiding for years
and paying people to do your sordid scam
For years you have taunted me
without showing any mercy
invading my privacy
monitoring my computer
tracing my movements
and intimidating me with coward gangster
You have sabotaged my employment
Shows up at my job interviews
instructed my employer to banish me
just to see the other side of me
Touch not God’s anointed 
Or your sorrows shall be multiplied
You have punished everyone who contacted me
and fabricates false stories and treacherous lies 
You have broadcasted it on the news
And have caused many people to become confused
It’s time to stop your filthy scam
and close that chapter before you are dammed
If you do not stop hurting me
there will be another worldwide disgrace 
staring in your beguiling face
You have punished the innocent ones
who have decided not to do wrong
I have kept out of your way
but you crawl back the other way
I am ready for a real fight
I will beat you without guns or knives
I have cried seven days on my ancestor’s grave
And seven powerful sprits will come after you
in seven different ways
they will strip you of your abusive power
daub you in your own mud
and drench you with flood
I have also prayed a strong prayer
hoping for your forgiveness
but he promised that you will bear
your own shame disgrace and drunken laughter
I have wept day and night stayed up late
yet you kept following me looking for a fight
creating false stories for your meaningless glory 
Take a look at your shaking hands
you are no match for my iron man
If you are so strong and heinous
Why don’t you come out of your peeping hole 
confront me and fight me like a real man
Come with your bullet less guns
your entourage and wimpy bodyguards
Real warriors go to war 
they do not stage events or create false alarm
If you are so big and mighty 
why  are so many people in your house dying of poverty
Look around you and you will see
you spend all the money running after me
And your people are hungry homeless and dirty
your house is about to tumble 
Your buildings are old and shabby
And I can barely drive on your cracked road
Look I just damage my windshield 
from a pebble on your broken roads
Your children cannot read or write
Your classrooms are old and crummy
Yet every day you are running after my innocent soul
the people you have running after me
are actually working for me?
They are slaves in my land
while the bad boys are reaping gold in your land
You set up fake mad men at the junction
and little children to guard the centers
You send fake alcoholic teachers in classrooms 
to suppress innocent students brain
Yet with all of that you still cannot get to the top
I have travelled thousands of miles to be at peace
but you track me down and
sold me to heartless murderers 
Look my ferocious bull is about to get you
he is my bodyguard and fearless warrior
if you don't leave me alone
He will rip your sordid gut apart
before the fiery battle starts

    Woman thy name is Jobe or at least your trials seem as his were said to be. In any case it was a roller coaster ride. Thanks

    This is a metophorical masterpiece. I am moved yet left confused, baffled and mesmorized. This one will roll around in my mind for a long time. For me I interpreted the man as a particular nation (which I shall not name). Perhaps not what you are going for but it is how this piece resonated within me.

    Excellent write Christine! I like the aspect of fighting back on the face of oppression - the mask seeks to provide immunity but the bullied do not cower in silence. Very well penned!

    Christine, your poem is exquisite. The idea is a trouble, thanks for encouraging us to stand up to our problems.

    does this, I wonder, refer to the big brother surveillance state we now find ourselves residing in? george orwell warned of it in his novel 1984, he belonged to the fabian society which was where he gained his inside information of what was planned for humanity, he wrote that book as a warning of what was to come, we didn't listen, hence the surveillance society/police state/big brother we are now stuck with...

    † Wow, This Poe Could Be Addessed Unto A Throng Of Potential People ? Kind Of Crazy When One Puts Things Into Certain Perspectives, Sweet Beautiful Christine ˜ I Really Like These Different Personalities We Seem To Find Within Your Wonderful Verse ? Attributes Perhaps Would Be A Better Term Yet, Powerful, Innocent, Priceless, Beautiful! I Have A Good Feeling That Your Precious Heart Knows That You Are Going To Be Fine * Thank You For Your Visit, Love, John
