Can’t be annoying but can’t be something I’m not - a free verse poem.
|In came the storied human desire -
A relevant oath to dispatch the rhetoric.
An enigma venting
A longing so enraged;
Completing that moral defense,
A blend of passion and negative worth;
A pittance that jarred the arrows
Of shields long broken.
A thousand years of enamored fortunes;
Behemoths boasting of rare triumphs,
Lunar destruction fed through auspicious quarters;
Skies embossed by such intrepid veils.
And closures meant for gory decimation.
A time of duty, and a declaration
And a sobering cry yielded
To ingratiate the gods -
Their life of appeasement
Generously laid before them.
