Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~”a bundle of contradictions” (from
Ann Frank’s last letter) (posted by Susan)
Make one new poem with the motif “a bundle of contradictions.” Alternatively, make a new poem with a motif inspired by Anne Frank.
I wonder if you realize
at day’s end, all the lies
you have told. If analyzed,
I doubt anyone would be surprised
to find your pathology compromised.
Oh, those sunken beady eyes
in folds of fat from fast food French fries.
It’s the role of dictator to which you ascribe.
America First, with no allies.
Your proclamations for the common man belie
those heavy taxes they’ll be forced to abide.
Behind family façade you seek to hide;
your ears are closed to children’s cries.
