Pied Piper

I don’t want to,

but it seems inescapable,

as Pavlov’s dogs,

sometimes, try as I might not to,

Vino 2

Puissant, in a perverted sense,

tormenting my being and essence.

Self-centered, supercilious, bloated, loathsome enemy;

howling winds, pouring rain:

tomorrow floods and more destruction,

ushering in,

they’re welcoming,

martial law.
