OctPoWriMo #15 – If I Had The Power

If I had the power, just for one day,
To shake up the world, re-set it my way
I’d start with the users, abusers,
The back-alley bruisers.

Line up the losels, the lawyers (the liars),
Froth-spewing firebrands casting hell-fire,
Pinheads in pinstripes, pushing round paper,
Washing their guilt, down with a chaser,

Round up the reivers, the rough-riding robbers,
Red-tape bureaucrats, acting the jobsworth,
Bullies and backstabbers. Ballyrags too.
Sweet-talking spinners, selling their view,

Day-dreaming drifters with stars in their eyes,
Death-dealing doctors, donning disguise,
Wheedlers and wastrels with whispering ways,
Pouring out poison, polluting their praise.

If I had the power, just for one day,
I’d shake up the world, re-set it my way.
I’d bring these all in (not heads on a pike):
Just make them “be nice”. To see what it’s like.

Unabashed Love Poem

Your eyes are pure poetry,
Your smile a song.
Your kiss is a chorus
We both sing along.

Every moment with you
Stokes my heart’s fire
Raises my soul up
Lifting me higher

Your laughter is lyrical
Your touch is divine
My heart is yours:
Will you be mine?

Because

Your eyes are pure poetry,
Your smile a song.
Your kiss is a chorus
We both sing along.
