In A Place of Stature

Two connected poems about social position

Lord

A male,

Strong-minded,

Powerful,

Prominent,

Aristocratic,

Forceful,

Standing tall,

Welcoming guests,

Eyeing females,

Careless of his wife,

Stone stares,

Husband-aimed,

Shaking hands,

Imagining fists,

Smashing into their faces.

Eating miniature foods,

Wolfing them,

Obese greed,

Dreaming of more,

Kissing his wife,

Lack of meaning.

Leaving the mansion,

Business-based lies,

Meeting with mistress,

Covert passion,

Secret revealed,

Arrogance,

Chauvinist attitude,

Alone,

Powerful,

Yet pathetic,

Untrustworthy.

The End
