Poetry Corner: “Hysterical Silence”

Hysterical silence

Majestic craggy mysticism
awe inspiring
timeless
proud
towering over the Ken and Barbie dwarfs
with the $599 I Phone imaginations
snapping like spoilt poodles
(which were left at the 5 star kennel)

Soon their blind eyes tire
such strenuous activity!
they can see the damn massifs on the home screen anyways
now its off to air conditioned retreats
with pleather seats
deodorized compartments of the living dulled

down the road another scenic lookout
more innocent corrupted children
chocolate smeared faces
stuffed at a simulated logger’s camp
“all you can eat buffet”

Belly protruding leader of the pack
bermudaed intelligence office instinct
hunter of the high dividend
decked his wife with gold and diamonds
that mean so much
and even more to the neighbours

and all gather at the lookout
object of mockery they are
the craggy mountains laugh
in hysteria
kings and queens of it all
