Perdition Assured

You try to mask your given voice

in what’s perverse and then profane

 

But truth speaks only for itself,

your costume tattered—seamstress blamed

 

This great parade, a grand charade,

your song a flattened chord

 

Its final line to seal your fate

—perdition now assured

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2017)
