Adolf_Hitler

He was a devil wanting Satan’s throne,
With failed Napoleon’s heart, to rule the world,
And was so arrogant he thought his own
One land could stand against all forces hurled. 

A power peacock, nation bully, beast,
Who thought himself and kind superior.
He proved to all instead to be the least,
Since mark of men is they can shed a tear. 

Against a hist’ry lesson that he knew,
He sought a second front against the Russian bear,
And greedy, bit off more than he could chew,
And choked to death upon that frozen fare. 

The world remembers him as bloody ghoul,
But Adolf Hitler lived and died a fool.

You’re Beautiful When You’re Angry

Mirror lies!
I’m the fairest one –
Not Snow White!

Target

Will a bee
Hit the bright bulls-eye,
Pinkest pink?

——————–

 

The Weak Become Strong

Great power
Is in these clasped hands
When praying.

What was that man General George Custer?
A hero? A braggart? All bluster?
A peacock for public and papers?
No substance, mere image and vapors? 

What was that man General George Custer?
A name that should live on in luster?
Or was he a fool who crusaded
For honor – so error pervaded? 

At Big Horn the big man was little;
His life and his men’s were all brittle.
A soldier, he sought fame and glory
His death, to this day, is the story.

A Sight To Behold

Your feathers:
All eyes upon you
The peacock.

His Highness

Shouldn’t she,
Instead of he, have
Flowing train?

Lady Peacock

Human she
More than makes up for
Her drabness.

God’s Exquisite Detail

Artistry
In just one feather
Then, the whole!
