Weapon Of Choice

by CJ Maleney   Jan 28, 2018



I think it's time to take some time out!
Some time just for myself.
I grow weary trying to be what you want,
And becoming someone else.

You see I now question your motives!
And the allegiances you hold,
I'd like to see a different choice!
For you to stand by it and be bold.

That sycophantic alliance!
Is something I do not trust.
It makes me want to curse and spit,
To vent some of my disgust.

Are the words I spit cathartic?
No! They are a merely what I feel.
You need adjust your attitude,
Because you make me want to scream!

You are so blind or blinkered!
Say you're not! and I'll say it's lies!
Just how many things have you missed?
!What a pitiful waste of eyes!

Words rain down like arrows,
And perhaps they're meant to wound.
Absorb or dodge them as you will,
If you feel they are aimed at you!

    Very strong...the anger and frustration is felt
    to the core. The last verse right up to the last line
    resonates...

      You know my poems and rhymes inside out by now.

      Nothing is written without a catalyst.

    Craig, a strong write. I feel your anger and frustration over recently transpired events. It's good to put things down on paper, helps ease all that is bouncing in your head. Well done Craig-take care-

      Honestly Bren, I'm bloody shocked that it was allowed to go so far.

      Proof that education and an iota of intelligence are no substitute for common sense and decorum.
