Greaving Pride

On bended knees
She wails quietly to dark skies
Nodding sagely nearby are palm trees
Who try to raise her with their sighs

Mad heavens hope with a flash of rain
To woo her heavy broken heart
An acre of eyes feast upon her naked pain
She kneels paler than snow, impaled by loves dart

Up she staggers rapped by her lovers
Whose peach promises gall into lies
Whose fingers ravage her ripped coffers?
Leaving her a bloody queen of the flies

She stumbles on in bathed breath
Her jackal lovers linger hoping for a kill
She struggles to cover her bruised wealth
Pelted in pain she leans upon her will

She heals as the cockcrows for the day
Even when all hope seemed totally lost
A gathering of her sons rising from the dust
In anger they arise to make her lovers  pay
