We Make Fist

Comes at you with fists and licks

Turns spirals around heads that make you sick

I've seen this before-

     Once before I've seen this

Been it pure from the waist to the fingertips

Makes strikes propel at an instant

Runs for blocks at rapid speeds for a distance

Turns mortal men into mere meek witnesses-

     That bare no righteous resemblance

Pours knowledge into minds like liquid

Can't be trumped, copied or mimicked

This thing near casualty when embraced or finished

But I am here to speak in profound sentence

To speak it in air till it shakes and quivers

Makes goodness barren of right and reason

Makes badness sour at its plum till weakened

Because I've had enough of people not showing up when intended

Sick and tired of showing up while my efforts go unreciprocated

So, I tire easy

I retire willingly

To escape this growing, manic hostility

That shows no signs of ending.

    "So, I tire easy I retire willingly To escape this growing, manic hostility That shows no signs of ending." My favorite part of this poem!
