Alternate Facts

I’m not the dream
you once employed
to form your scheme.
I am the void.
What you ignored,
even deplored,
now yawns with dawn.

Run, Man, Just Run

It’s not cool man,
not cool at all!
We had a plan
if you recall.
But, well, oh no!
You had to show
what you could do!

What Brought the Night

When cats were gods
and men were mice
and thoughts were frauds
meant to entice
and dreams were framed
by words unclaimed
Then day made way

Thanks to the mouse of The Twisting Tail for the reminder of cats having been gods (and a great Terry Pratchett line). 😸
