Cold Steel

Written for:  April 2022 PAD - Day 11

"Write a power poem."

Cold steel,
penetrating blue eyes.
Leviathan with heel
on the disenfranchised–
indifferent to appeal.

A tyrant
we have witnessed before
in World War II's violence–
people killed by the score.
Must halt this assailant.

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.
