False Prophet



Howling at the moon...

feeding on fanatical fears...

in a pack of predators preying...

baying and baying...

wolf in sheep's clothing

One of those poems for which each reader may have their own interpretation. For me, it alludes to the way that the majority can be, or can be persuaded wrong. Evocative and thought provoking, Susan.

I commented on this piece a while ago, for some reason it didn’t post. This made me think of the current political landscape.

Excellent Cinquain, Susan. The ending line carries a lot of meaning - there are many kinds of predators in today's world. T.J
