Oppressor Tyrant ( For Poetry Potluck)


Demand is greater when the sheep collide
Purchasing sacrifice for your delight
Combative in every phase
Looking for an ounce of praise

Oppressor
Tyrant
Sadistic reveler of the spirals course
Uneven bars you break then mold
Coffers out of men

Eyes like vultures
Prepared to swoop
Teeth like boar
Preparing to eat the dead
Slop you toss
Into this pen
Watching as the meek contend

Oppressor
Tyrannical
Sadistic leader of dichotomy imposed
Shepherds you’ve spun into pawns
Inching closer yet far removed
In your boardroom balcony
Wagering for the first to fall
Demonic laughter white noise for y’all

Oppressor
Tyrant
Behemoth-like groan

Broke, unbalanced,
Light trickling through a veil of black
Collating symmetry between the stacks
Adrenalins cure at breakneck pace
Blink but for a moment
To reveal theirs more
Freedoms to erase

Chains of the persecuted we’ve become
Entangled to,
Lechery in what some would die to have
Broken,
Will collapsed
Four walls
No glass
Softened blankets breaking fall
Alone. 
Alone.
Peace at last
Far
Away
From the devils grasp
