Fear to act on behalf of human decency and rights bodes paralysis without a vaccine.

Forever Chameleon


At once the magician

The power of anything out of the hat

Beckoning broadcast

Sanguine power to watch


For just as fear freezes

So too thaws the past

Upon deaf ears

History replays

Ancient truths

No amount of hiding

Can contain


Believing he is without rival

Confident of the buttons






How rose this kind

This uncontained dark embodiment

This rule by madness

Designing mass murder

Foreshadowing Hollywood versions

Political rants of hawkish lean


Dictators yet to come


We watched

We cringed

But we…


While destinies of Peoples

Being roiled by storms of passion

Reigning upon their innocence

Awaited twisted cravings

That never cooled

Knew not the warmth of sun

Only the ice of all that is dead


With words like hammer blows

Gates protecting the hearts of people





For lest we forget


Centuries bury

But also resurrect

Endlessly revealing

For some

Cyclic misfortune






He died

But might he be back

Haunting the global mirror

An insanity ever reflective


Seeing himself

As once Hitler

Now an Assad




Forever Chameleon

Evil. It abounds where good seems to back itself into dark corners and only whisper meaningless words of truth and honesty. Aye, dictators are being pummeled from their golden glittering castles, but the ones taking it from them are also to be feared. They, too, I am afraid, are evil.

Stark and real and very effective, Odin. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace to you,
