Structure is crumbling.

Like shark to blood, you circle,

Sensing and feeding on weakness,

Delighting in predation’s power;

You press your attack

With peace treaty crumpled underfoot,

Mounting ladder to scale boundary hastily erected.

Had you come

A humble visitor to doorway,

I could have extended the invitation

For tea.

But when my sentries spot your ladder,

They sound the alarm

And hunker in bunkers to repel another

    Very well written and a theme I can relate to all too well at this time!

      Oh, oh. Trouble. | hope you will have the strength to make the wise decisions you need to make – and the courage to stick to them!

        Thank you, it is a long, dark and winding road ahead! Thanks for sharing!

      • melodylowes says:

        We who are on this journey need to stick together! IT IS long – but you will make it! You don’t need to win every battle right now – just the one called ‘Today’! 🙂
