    "What goes around....."

    ash

    .





    like a cruel queen
    tied to a crude stake
    she burned in the flames of fate
    for one day she did meet her match
    snakes of fruition began to hatch
    her castle sank within its moat
    and serfs did punch holes in her boat
    and dragons breathed with burning breath
    and sanctioned life with scorching death
     
    her credit cards did rust, recessed
    disgraced just like her family crest
    she once sat high all poised and perched
    believed her strengths outweighed the church

    now pawns all pale in worthless white
    sent viruses to her website
    computers crashed and turned to ash
    and thrown out with the evening trash

    this cruel queen, this crude stake
    she burned in the flames of fate.

    History will speak and judge but I believe America is on a downhill slide and soon to be mere memories.

    i really like this poem. i like it more now that you like it....lol. thank you for such kind words.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
