The Muse Was Upon Me

and so, here is a tone poem, “Self Destruct”. © 2004 F. John Barker III

Self-destruct
Lies you told
Opportunities you exploited
Lives you have ruined

Do you feel shame?
Do you accept responsibility?
What caused your action: greed, immaturity?

Situations change
Friendships destroyed
Trust nowhere to be found.

If this was your goal
You far outdid yourself
Now, you are alone.

Whatever pity, sympathy
We may have felt
Washed away by time

As more was revealed
The more uncovered
The truth raised its ugly head.

Scheming, scamming
A way of life for you…
Welcome to the depths of solitude.
