The Gluttonous Fool

The Gluttonous Fool

A Poem by K. L. Nussbaum
"

The final piece to the seven deadly sins poetry regarding characters from the heroine of 'To End the Crusade's past.

"

Sparks of jealousy,

Ignite in his eyes.

Interwoven in his policy,

He hides his lies.

 

Innocents killed,

For their power.

He is thrilled,

And never cowers.

 

A woman mated,

He tries to steal.

His desire unsated,

He pretends to feel.

 

Set her alight,

When she refused.

In the night,

She wouldn't be used.

 

A mother's rage,

He threatened her child.

She wouldn't be caged,

His actions so vile.

An apt and unique perspective on the Glutton. And timely in this season of gluttony aping as Thanksgiving.

NOTES: Did you mean: "And never [cowers]."

Ah yes I missed that one as well. Gluttony shows its face most on Black Friday, I'll agree.

Ah my spell check must have missed that. Thank you for pointing it out.
Very deep, very intense, this is my freaking jam. Keep up the good work, Hime no Yuki. And I need to ask you, is the guy on the left in your profile picture Zero Kiryu?

Ah, because the guy on the left looks like Zero Kiryu from Vampire Knight.
As I read this, I see either Lenin or Stalin...

I read in one of the reviews this was about that one Templar. Very nice, I feel like I understand him a lot better, and it's quite the poem with the rhyme and word usage.

Outstanding, I love your word choices and expressions. How you not only put gluttony in there but quite a few others and even how they tied back to gluttony. I will have to read the others that go with this piece because this one was really great! Especially for it to be the first one I picked to read of yours.

Very good most refer to gluttony with hunger so it is nice to see someone to use gluttony in a none eating way very good job. Great Work

A different kind of gluttony than most associate it with, but gluttony all the same, the b*****d. Great rhymes throughout this and it flowed really well. I enjoyed it a lot!
