The King Of Thieves

How do people function
when vitality is stray?
They sleepwalk through town
waiting for their next fix
to numb the prowl
Might you care to
take care of you?
Strip it down, get real
you sense the call don’t you?
Your drug is lethal
though it’s legal
Everyday a slow demise
eating away at your
once precious life
A subtle poison
rotting the core
of your amazement
Reclaim, remain prestige
Take back the title
fishnetted by thieves

  1. You have succeeded in knitting together in lifelike confused union the kind of forced deal made between the honest and the dishonored. It is disturbing and I thank you for it.
