The Poetic Warlock

Note:  A "Warlock" is a male witch

I am the poetic Warlock,
Putting poets in a headlock
Spellbound? Just believe what you’re seeing
A morbid mind confined within my being!

Poetically I let the energy flow from me
To metaphorically turn me into a beast!
I spring from an altered reality
Blessed with immortality to be a priest!

Forget nine lives; I’m walking and talking, eternity
Where no poet survives outside this fraternity
Poetically, I’m committing a felony
Forcing stanzas into captivity!

From the push of my pen
Intertwined is every word
I play to be king among men,
Knocking those in first place to third!

You had better say a prayer
If you steal from my metaphor store
I’ll have you pulling out your hair
While you prepare for this war!

Poets, I’ve come to graciously slay.
That doesn’t captivate me so I read Hemingway!
But Edgar Alan Poe, just so you know,
Fuels the flow; he’s my sensei!

A poet with demonic entities in his corner,
I emotionally murdered my baby momma
And I did not even mourn her!

How I hate fake friends that pretend,
Especially when we were cool since childhood
I’d break a leg just to avoid them
Like the plague, they are no good!

Once again it’s time for Halloween!
Put on your masks and prepare to scare!
Heads will roll from my poetic guillotine
And this I do declare!!
