The day's parlance

lacks all patience. 


So many seem

to need a sceptre 

on which to balance

all that incompetence. 


And the potion 

in the cauldron

aims to animate 

nobody but the zealot. 


But what if

the very premise

is flawed, crumbles

at the mere mention

of a wrathful god?

◄ Senseless...

Eavesdropping... ►

I would guess that the premise is flawed, Holden. But the poem is good!

I like the way this trips a long at a good pace.
Nice one
