Scoffing The Wise

Scheming demons
in kingly guise
foisting treasons
on the unwise
Moving the light
closer to night
and flaying day

Another Turn

From longest night
to newborn day
when fear takes flight
and hope holds sway
Because of one
trip round the sun
we queue anew

Not a Picnic

Holding tight to
her teddy bear
on a flight through
here to somewhere
as nightmares play
both night and day
to form her norm
