Duplicity's Dance

by MichaelFirewalker

how distant it can seem
same old blood and fire today
stokes our clean machines
strokes our rushing dreams

while naked bodies pile
red decay
across hot charnel grounds

all the good intentions bent
so much earnest down
unpaid rent
fender dents
occluded cardiac stents

and Mother Earth turns
round and round
as we claim a noble stance
say we come to stay
then ignobly throw
all of it away
when shadow’s first
sideways glance
clots our merry way

who is watching

The free rhymes work great in this..they give it a palpable intensity.
