Drip, drip, drip ...

HEY! Waitaminit! No, I wasn't talking about me, thank you very much!

No, that's referring to how I think these poems are going to show up ... a bit here and a bit there ... I had a half hour to kill just now and got this one typed up ... so quit making snide remarks and click on the link already!

                    LOOSING THE DRAGON

                    when that dragon
                    uncurls to light
                    none expect it,
                    none stand prepared;
                    we forget him
                    dark in his lair
                    and how he hates
                    the human race

                    the crowd gapes speechless
                    not processing
                    the scene before them
                    as madness wells
                    and spills our in their world;
                    no understanding,
                    no means to deal,
                    all too shocking

                    and here inside
                    I can not act
                    can not rein the beast;
                    too many hidden scars
                    react in this,
                    too many dark reserves
                    are brought to bear
                    in explosive rage

                    so many cycles
                    of our decline
                    have been weighed down
                    by this insanity;
                    how is it that
                    we can not reach
                    across that veil
                    into their world?

                    were we able
                    to break this spell
                    what would change?
                    how many powers
                    would come to hand
                    if these shackles
                    fell away
                    and we were freed?
