Cento – All Consuming

Cento – All Consuming

(from the poetry of The Vixen of Verse)

Enemies…Philostines,

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.
