The Top

The Top

A Poem by Jwakefield

False men, all of these.
Heads like summer hams,
And eyes that plead for blood.

Fat, crackling tongues
Spark dishonest engines
And dribble on the bones.

Baby fat slimed hair,
Purple, pulsing veins,
Feed into a vacuum.

Corndog fingers stroke,
Sultry words spew out,
And drench wide open ears.

Loved by all their haters,
Hating all their lovers,
And feasting on the flesh.

So true! I wrote a poem with a similar message, called "Fat Cats." You nail your colours to the mast here in eloquent style!

A lot of people rise to the top fair and square but there are others who rise on the back of victims and illegal activity belonging to militias or mafias or hate groups. They feed on money , drugs and power...A splendid poem...:)
