3 evil kings

this is a tale of 3 evil kings...unholy trinity making even outlaws scream
one called pleasure...one called pain...one called power
they bring death to the game to destroy and to devour
marked with madness like the number of the beast...flooding the horizon as they dominate the least

in rides pleasure with a smile on his face...giving candy coated curses to the victims of the day
the first one's free but soon you'll have to pay
on the devils playground...that's where his children turn to clay

in rides pain as pleasure disappates...loves turns to hate and sunshine to storms
with bars on dirty windows and triple locks on steel doors
laughing loud with lunacy he makes walking timebombs tick and tock
with sour soul sadness some get sick and some get shot
once standing together now they're turning on each other...son against father and brother against brother

in rides power on a horse called hate...blood money flows as rage takes the stage
selling their souls for their only earthly options...adding fuel to the fire of their anger filled addictions
fiction to friction...telling lies in mad infernos...slow soul burns and their spirits glow

like nuclear radiation destroying countless lonely lives...like withering flowers in spring
bowing on dirty knees to those 3 evil kings
they sit laughing on their thrones staying drunk on their disease

    Good afternoon Tony. The weekend and half this week are gone and this is the first I have had a chance to read. Had so much drama in my life. Really feeling good reading poetry today. Glad yours was among them. Love, Carol

    We see the first king coming and welcome pleasure into our lives. But when power enters, pain is usually not far behind, Anthony. How freely we sell our souls to these kings because we don't see them for what they are. Great use of metaphors to convey your message powerfully, Anthony. An excellent, intelligent write. Love, Carolyn
