Relinquish

A Poem by Zorrin86

Is life so fragile

That you would avoid touching hammers

And scoff as the mad

Run around with scissors?

Poised in your brushed sleigh

Before your god king,

The illusion of safety strangled

You with a diamond encrusted hand,


But I remember when things were different

When you jumped through fire to spite candles,

As you sacked cities and ransomed them off

To pay for your lavishly expensive habits,

Even the Nobles were sold into slavery

To work the coal mines in unheard of conditions,

Where life was cheap and light even more expensive

Than mountains of gold and savory summer wine

I like this a lot. It's meaning and intention are clear, concrete, but it still manages to provide vivid, sensational imagery. Having two stanzas of equal length is not a drastic decision, but it fits and I admire your consciousness of such details. Keep it up!
