Trojan

In how many Trojan scenarios shall I be your suffragette?
A wise man told me “suffering is common” – that was his sentiment
Draw me up introspectively a study in human betrayal
I cast shadows of doubt on gravestones reading, HOPE
Even as the dark underbelly of the horse comes alive

One thought on “Trojan

  1. Nice. There is so much imagery in this poem that both sneaks up on the reader and confronts the reader directly. I love poetry with a “punchline” and the “dark underbelly of the horse comes alive” delivers! Well done.
