Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


21 August 2013



I write ancient history in a future tense

a prophet of sorts with my own bias and slant

an apocryphal gospel of malcontent


I rewrite the facts the way that I want

living alternatives one at a time

sickened by myself as a sycophant


but this power I shall not decline

‘though it remain merely a fantasy

self-deception is most often sublime
