Time’s up

Megha's World

“I am small.

So are stars from a distance. It’s all a matter of perspective.”
― C. Kennedy, Slaying Isidore’s Dragons

I have heard many
insults you have hurled
You have unbirth
many excuses to
hide under
the veil of your
mistakes and
and then some;
You are done with
your victim shaming
and name calling
you have got my love
confused with
my submission;
It is time to strip
and peel you off
the patriarchal robe
you adorn
sitting high and mighty
on the throne;
You have the list
of mistakes and guilt
you ignored
Your empire is
gonna crumble down
as I see cracks
made by my
bloody knuckles;
You will run like
never before
prepare to get hunted
like a bloodied boer
it’s the end of an era
of pain and abuse
cause, My king!
your time is up.

  1. Ah, sounds like the King has met his match. The Queen is no longer staying quite. I can relate to her in the poem. Awesome writing, Megha!
