Twisted Reality

When I step inside your twisted reality ... this is what my spiritual eyes see, your soul revealed in it's totality A scaly skin of self-serving morality ... you always ask, what's in it for me, what can you do for me materially? Got emotional raging volcanity ... spewing verbal pyroclastic debris, you say you only speak Pompeiiese With your serpentine smug urbanity ... prefer a gated community, only mingles with high society Spread suburban mundanity ... selling cookie-cutter, debt prison housing to families with furnishings of faux upholstery Invest in commercialism inanity ... everything must be sold is your belief, even used products with expired warranties Keep a get-rich-quick mentality ... you think everybody envies a successful thief, need only confess to your corporate priest Suited sharks all have an aggressive vitality ... eat or be eaten is the mindset to be beastly, you pick the bones clean with ravenous mendacity Hiding your lewdness in the cloak of formality ... giving gluttonous divinations at pagan feasts, your rented body is the patron jinn of soiled sheets Cutting all soft hearts with the blade of hard brutality ... unlock the cages of your rapacious menagerie, killing souls has been your most primal urgency Tampered traffic lights creates a mass fatality ... your hand pushes the button and turn the key, creating carnage for all to witness your legacy You pepper life-and-death stakes with vile profanity ... a seasoned, master provocateur you be, poisoning the minds with rancid digital obscenity Rejecting all that is good for humanity ... cursing the fruit of the life-giving tree, you rage against the people of the holy Time to step outside of your straight-jacket insanity ... the evil that lives within the madness of your psyche The truth of the cosmos shall consume you utterly This poem is submitted to: Contest: Word Challenge Sponsor: Silent One Date: 01-30-17

This one was dark, loud and angry and so suited for the contest and one more thing, this has to be the first poem I have ever read that had the words "pyroclastic debris". Loved that line btw, wished I had thought of it. Good luck my friend.

Ty, Ahmed. Do appreciate your concern for my welfare. But I don't fear them who can only destroy the body, but not the soul. Your support is very encouraging to me, brother. L & P ~ always.
