Scapegoat

A time tested honor
to be branded a goner,
just stand in the middle
of their circle of blame.
In this sex-crazed society
still obsessed with propriety,
it is you they'll belittle
to protect their good name.





*Inspired by the spot-on gorgeous frowny faces anchoring the Fox News Network. 
  Keep pointin' dem fingers boys!

    The carnal mind always needs the underdog, for subject to scorn, for it lives in the insecurity of it's egotistical self. Brilliantly written piece, Good job. Sincerely Moses
