Let’s play with our pets
Keep them happy and content
While we milk them dry

Power Race

The race to power
Is won with fear and fury
While inert we watch

Mists

By Scott Bailey © 2016

Mist breathes on the moors
Then the new sun arises
Dissipates to green

Poem a day challenge #148 (Man)

Man

By Scott Bailey © 2013

I am the hunter
The bringer down of prey
The destroyer
The shadow
The bringer of fear.
I am the master of war
The hoarder of riches
The steel lord
The holder of lightning
I am strength and glory

So why do I still struggle in vain

Poem a day challenge #269 (Giants)

Giants

By Scott Bailey © 2014

I have seen giants
Striding over the land
Power on their shoulders
Stern and strong their hand

Never do they falter
Never seen one stumble or fall
Always do their duty
Always answer the call

Through storm and wind and rain
The carry their burden true
Though other links may burn out
The giants stride on through

So remember this and tremble
Even the giants will pass
Fall into dust and rusty ruin
Scattered in untamed grass

One day their burden will dissipate
Their purpose will disappear
And the duty they discharged so well
A memory dimmed with time
