BRIBES AND BURDENS

  
Faded pictures,

monochrome;

A thief 

in charnel house repose.

Cast by streetlight,

slanting shadow;

Shirking fame

for human bondage.

Tendered service

now complete,

My sacred visions

now released 

Upon an earthbound plastered guile-

a thin veneer 

unreconciled

With anything remotely true;

this membership,

with privilege grew-

A tyrant’s bribe,

and burden too.

A guilt,

At last,

that I remove,

and no longer accept from you.
