The bats of day

Standard

Diurnal

bats

Hanging on the roof

Crazy

Trying not to heed

The sound of normal

Instead

Embracing

Indifference

Their difference

A gang of sorts

Bidden by the

Imposter king

Who tells them how

To rule others

Like the king does

~

To foster fear

To insure hate

To continue to run

Away from the

Straight way to live

Rather live

Upside down

Crooked

But obedient

~

Where will these

Bats end?

Will they fly

Away

Learning another way?

Or will they

Follow

Always

Never to know

True camaraderie

  1. There is so much here, Amy, in the lines, these wonderfully short punchy lines, and between them.
    Subtle, sharp and immensely worthwhile.
    Kudos!

  2. Thanks, John,
    I appreciate your helpful and encouraging insights.
    Actually I pushed myself to make this a longer poem due to some of your poems that are even better when you examine your subject to the best of your ability.
