A Bitter Tonic

grandiose occasions

a tempest fueled my heart

a burst of joy absent bombs madness


a knightly king

throughout the travesty of time

a hidden intellectual

treaded sublime


a golden cherub

upon a hasty brow

to view another's actions

to fleece and cash cow


a nation's fallen grace

lost in the absence of space

the truth acknowledged through a narrow lense

robbed the masses of the chance to begin again



a bitter tonic

has no show

absent grace astonished

the final mortal blow
