Dictatorial Whore

She’ll goose-step once more
on the necks of those who serve her, and,
by turn, they’ll grind an impoverished heel
between the shoulder blades
of the damned muted parade.
Faces blanch in shame
afraid of retribution.
And yet, humanity remains.
The blue collar;
They will still serve her.

  1. I'm sure this isn't what you're talking about but she sounds like my kind of woman. Either way, good poem. Very powerful. I like the imagery. It's short and sweet.

  4. hey samantha - love this piece; her intrinsic wickedness is the draw... wow the title grabbed my attention and i didnt blink...
    couldnt avert my gaze... the imagery is far to appealing... powerful
    and moorish.

    i love a good quote too ^^^.. the Art of Whore... lol
