Give me the boy and I will give you the Demon

America created a tyrant -
and bayed for his blood

You might think that is the beginning
and the end -
but the middle?

Nothing more than one foot
after the other
over a trail
of bone and blood the size of a country
and slippery as oil.

Something vaguely topical - and the carpet is metaphorically pulled from under my feet.  Ironic huh?  No picture this week, though. for more Tuesday poems click on the Tuesday Poem hub :)
