THE RIGHTFUL DENIZEN

Read Time:36 Second

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [The Rightful Denizen]
When allies degenerate into foes, then
The heart evicts her denizen

When the voice becomes a litany
The swaying leaves lose their rhythm

The hunter only hunts his bait
From its shell, detaches the snail

The ground trembles
As the couple rumble

Everything goes wrong
Everybody mourns

Life loses her savour
Like sauce lacking flavour

You get a piteous sight
You cry out in fright

But if only you had
Paid attention to the presage

The heart would have been joyful
Peaceful and delightful

It would have been rightly shepherded
It would have accommodated

The true dweller
The one who lingers forever
