Words that Hurted

when monsters rage

through dreams perverted

violence urged

from impotent stage

roles reversed

compassion subverted

ravening stooges tower

beyond mortal cage

thugs terrorize

bigotry reverted

re-write rules of power

omnipotence asserted

war of hate wages

decency deserted

by narcissist avower

proclaiming, defaming

kindness downtrodden

values diverted

wounded souls evil labeled

dictators’ worth inflated

his campaign of destruction

circus crowd cheering

my mistake a life sentence

of rejection and jeering

hope from veins spurted

as abomination enrages

with exertion concerted

collective engages

animus is inverted

spewn blood-inked

scrawled in marginal pages

love ever trumps hate

implosion averted
