Fool’s Gold

They came for her

She was the girl next door

She was gentle

Did no wrong

She greeted everyone

No one knew she was

The secret wife

Of the man who terrorizes our city

No one knew she was 

Aiding and abetting his crimes

We all could have sworn

That she was a saint

We were shocked

For her glittering gold

Was fake.

        Very cool id21#&8e1a;thanks for sharing. When I was heavy into poetry I always read poetry before I started to write, stealing little phrases that ultimately got subverted beyond recognition. Hmm. I should do this again…

    Os comunas e cripto comunas são como os mao+istas da revolução cultural chinesa.Dão liberdade aos facistas de confessarem os pecados publicamente para depois os exibirem de canga.É esta a liberdade de esquerda. Demasiado parecida com a Ini§ÃsqÃui£o.
