Society’s Illness

Rum and Robots

Poem by Joni Caggiano 11/28/20 – Image byAjay kumar SinghfromPixabay

dark the barred windows of my years
where horrors lay with tortured tears

did I not venture from my hoary nest
lineage now ridded of timeworn test

pestilence doth purloin love and age
veiling hearts and death in ruddy cage

inside is out, and out is within a crust
shielding the living from turning to dust
