Poem - Betrayal

The poem “Betrayal” is a largely free form examination of a group’s perception that they are under attack.


Erosion of power
loss of privilege
bulwarks tested
walls breached
control slipping
demotion granted
forbidden blessed
the fear is real
tradition warns
prophets preach
crusade’s draw
in the streets
sibling faiths
with dark skin
retribution asked
the bill is due
the attack has come
from the unsaved
from the unwashed
from the deluded
when brokers turn
on their brethren.
