Freeverse: Delusion of Angels and March

Delusion of Angels and March

Delusions

are the whispers of angels

who lost their way,

standing for March and folly,

and you are the unwitting pawn

of gods

who never err

yet deem the conviction to flame

fit for mortal sops,

for we are but dogs,

mongrels beset with tick and flea,

which dine as kings,

gorging themselves on poisoned blood,

the sole legacy

of the unnatural food we consumed.

And if man makes war

o’er hunger and thirst,

I say let him,

that March may place folly on a pedestal

and that angels who lost their way

may whisper sweet delusions

until the last knell of the tolling bell,

and hunger and thirst

he shall

nevermore.

  1. Great nd amazing stuff here, as usual. I liked the Poe-like feel and the ending, but this was defenately my most favourite part:”for we are but dogs,
    mongrels beset with tick and flea,
    which dine as kings,” – this can stand as a whole powerfull poem of it’s own.

  2. a penetrating piece, Mr King. I love the first line
    Delusions

    are the whispers of angels

    who lost their way,
    and its return towards the end of the poem works well, I also love the line about the last knell of the tolling bell (that had a fantastic ring to it, no pun intended but funny, really was a great line). You never fail to slap your audience with the ‘beaty-stick of brilliance’, sir. Very nicely done :)

    1. No pun intended? No pun intended?!?!?!?!?!?!? But…that was a nicely executed pun! :( I would have intended the pun! >:D Thanks again, Baldy. This is one of those random ones that just worked out, I guess. :)
