Poem - On Their Side

The poem “On Their Side” is about the amazing incongruity of two sides accusing each other of the same evils, even while they wear the same halos.


On Their Side

The holy angels take a side
when conflict coincides
with each faction in surety
that cherubs are their allies

the evil in demon’s charms
are granted to opposites
sulphur is the taint
surrounding the assailants

now turn the tables to verify
the mirror confirms roles
flipped to the opposites
nothing changed in reverse

sanity has left the room
heaven and hell no longer served
when all parties can’t realize
only they are on their side.
