The Intruder


welcome to earth

population

of kings

a world of luxury

forbidden

palaces

of power

declaring war

on nature

an advancing army

unguarded walls

a facade

covering up

the burn

whitewashed

and sealed

more effective

impenetrable

but there is

an

intruder

Secret Agendas


no sign of it

on me

but if they would

or

if i like

or need

from others

something

not so extreme

with

coats wide open

and no city lights

to see

they could have

a spectacle

inside these

double doors

these weapons

are

the result of

other things

or i could

just talk to

myself

even then

Empty Promises


all that could prove

to be

potential

shaken down

lost

tilted over

a violent quake

agonizingly slow

unto dust

a pile of rubble

the descendents

just may

beat the odds

take their chances

no

guarantees
