lust & lies

A quadrille for dVerse Poets on theme of “sleep”….

______________

things got hot in egypt

when potiphar’s wife urged
young servant joseph
“come, sleep with me!”

he refused to dishonor master;
resisted by fleeing without cloak
which became false evidence

potiphar’s wife deceitfully
cried “rape!” which swiftly
landed joseph in slammer

integrity is costly!

painting ofJoseph and Potiphar’s Wife” by Guido Reni, 17th century

hellfire-breathing

 

that ancient dragon
cunning serpent
epitome of evil
father of lies
the deceiver
our accuser
murderer

satan still prowls
“seeking whom he may devour”
whether sinners, saints, saviors

his loyal minions
destroy families
enslave addicts
abuse children
pervert truth
entice fools
incite wars

beware!

 

 


Linking with dVerse Poets where De Jackson invites us to write a quadrille (44 words) on “dragon” theme…

mad…or just magnetic?

Sometimes you just gotta play…magnetic poetry!  (First time I used one set of words, no “adds”.)
