Cento – All Consuming
(from the poetry of The Vixen of Verse)
the American Dream is turning into a nightmare!
The modern world is rushing past at accelerated speed,
people only two pay-days away from destitution.
Explore disability, in another’s uncomfortable shoes
pain is physical, it hurts like hell,
time is no healer, despite what they say.
The nightmare that said they were dead
Consumes me, inflames with obsession
Mother and child.
