The Pseudo Messiah

Bull-headed and eagle-eyed
Monarch of this concrete block. His savagery
Emerges and for the first time in my life
I am truly afraid. He stalks the ground
Around, divesting remnants of itself

‘I will always be here,’ he hisses
Pompous and puffed up. Unrestricted, marauding
Governed by no law that God or man
Can conjure up. Immense and unearthly
Captivating the unwary

There is a discernible flow,
A gushing red river, of fear from those of us
Who cannot discern your charm
Your ego batters against
Our fragile edges

You offer us only malevolence
And you deceive your disciples
With false benevolence
And I can never sleep again
In your presence.
