Fated Hell

Slovenly sorrows cause a blur, Shameful shallows seep and stir. He whimpers; a cowering cur, Deathbed's deals, give-take, now occur. Soul dried, bunched ball of prickly burr Waste-of-time tears, goad like a spur. Apologies, are but a slur, Regrets besmirch like rancid myrrh. Slanderers’ stooge, no amateur, Souls sold, Evil’s entrepreneur. Atropos to cut; F A T E S concur Time to let loose this saboteur! “Burn in H E L L”, said the whisperer… Contest: Early August Standard Sponsor: Brian Strand 3rd Place ~Susan Ashley~ 7/28/17

Rhyme behaves like putty under your fingers, Susan...not by accident, but by patience & keen attention; same applies to alliteration...you are mistress of both! The subject matter is deep and dark, and at the end of it there is a strong wish to break away. ~ Warm regards // paul
