The Night Marauders

It started like every other night

When family values are shared

The usual daily giggles

The whispers, the lullaby that

Ushers in the slumber nest

It started with a faint noise

Which rises in crescendo

As the wolves gang up

Poised for mutiny and misery

Ugly sights of sable demeanour

They were the monsters of gloom

Brandishing their cudgels of war

The tools of destruction

That sends cold chills on our spines

They made mincemeat of our ego and pride

As we coughed out our sundries and gold

Our toils of beaded sweat

We prostrated to the earth

Kissing the sole of their feet

Cringed in a world of delusion

We watched the monsters

Made away with our glories

Our world of harmony and bliss

The monsters of the night indeed.

    1. Thanks Marypamela for your visit and kind comment.I appreciate. But I was wondering what you mean by @”Something is definitely wrong with me.” 🙂 Have a great week ahead. Cheers!


      1. I meant because I loved the darker piece more than the airy and light pieces. This piece had more emotion. I felt anger, hatred, contempt against steering up promoting fear. Why can I relate to this piece more than the others? Hence, my comment. 🙂

      2. Oh! Now, I understand your sentiments. The darker piece make for rich poetry with the use of imagery as well. I agree that this is loaded with painful emotion. Sadly, it’s a societal ill that has no end in sight. It’s easier to pen the light piece together though. Lol. Thanks for the explanation. 🙂
