Innocent but cast a villain
calls for resolve, and nerves of steal.
Make plans to bring truth to the deal,
slaying lies like penicillin,
or St Valentine’s Day killin’.
A hit piece out picking cherries,
below the belt bruising berries.
Once a favorite of the trigger,
now clickbait for the gravedigger.
And the massed mind swings and varies.
My entry for this week’s Décima Poetry Challenge NO. 44 (STEAL).
