BLINDSIDED

You danced in the ring
A gaudy display of pride
But did you not think

There are consequences?

You’ll always lavish
Yourself with the spoils
Paper over all the

Dirty details

Were it possible
I’d blacklist you
But why should I

Waste time

When this poor vessel
Must now work
Tooth and nail
Simply to survive
No sympathy when
You get your due

      Thank you, Suzanne. This poured out as if it was prewritten. Go figure.

        Must be, Suzanne. The words could have led anywhere, but they led to there. 😛
