shock

Written for:  The Twiglets #91 – “a slight shock”

more than a light shock
when he was hit
by lightning

Each item
is a slighter shock
on the evening news

A shock-jock promoting hatred
on a radio station in Madrid
proclaimed, “I’m a Christian,
pure white”, when they frisked him
arrested for abuse and an ego inflated

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
