someone once asked
will it always be this way
and back then mastery
or conquest for the sake
of mastery or conquest
or keeping the world
beautifully unequal
still swung a hatchet
of clout and so what

an insane man braved
a forest sure to swallow
him whole at least it was
understood he did it
because it was there
and polite society
never invited him
to their personal growth
seminars anyway

About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
