Them! She turns and points out to the ones
Sons of a son who once harmed her young dear
Years paid with glee at her blatant lying
Sighing, I check her on the list with ease
Please help! My child dies! A mom screams and begs
Dregs! Responds the suit ignoring her needs
Pleads we just can’t fund this, now close the doors!
Scores the suit on my list for lies, the fool
Cool water sprinkles her newly done face
Placed perfectly by the surgeon’s hand
Grand, she still wants a little done right there
Unaware her name has just been marked down
Frowns cross his brow as he simply just stares
Dares himself to leave her, just walk away
“Staaaay” purrs a voice not his wife and he smiles
While I write his name to my dossier
Beware! Fists comes down on unaware face
Trace the tears that fall along with his goal
Rolls the jewelry he’s craved so deep inside
Snide for a moment, I check off his name
Same old, same old she says with a sneer
Leers at the ones who can’t afford her styles
Smiles as she plied with even more trite things
Brings her to my list with renowned due haste
Waste best described most indolent ways
Staying far from hard work Oh she’ll try
Dry her nails is the most effort given
Livin’ as though, I can’t check one more name
Blame? I have none the choice made is their path
Wrath, Greed, Pride, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Sloth,
Cloths my claim for the dark souls of theirs
Care not on the cause for their deadly sin
In smiling silence, add names to my list
Gist? Your name could be added next, ahem!
Did anyone notice the pattern? This poetic form is called a Rime Enchainée. The pattern of the Rime Enchainée is very simple – the last word of each line rhymes with the first word of the following line, and the last word of the last line rhymes with the first word of the first line, bringing the form back full circle.
love the math part, way to go.
Thanks Aya. I cannot take take credit for the Anagram of Sin, that was one the many insane things that can be found in that innocent haven known as the Internet. It was the perfect addition to the poem and I couldn’t resist adding it.
Awesome verse … loved the form!
And I was laughing at the diagram: AB = Lust and Gluttony – Edible Undies LOL Awesome!
Ahahaha! Thanks Bajan. Seriously, Bajan, of all the sins listed, and the potential for so much more, why am I not surprised you are most amused by the edible undies?
*angelic innocent eyes*
why, that’s my favourite pastime…. *blink blink*
You know you are wrong – AHAHAHAHAHA!
