Devil's Masquerade

by B.J. Burgins

Creepy clowns
running round,
race relations in
high questioning,
gangs spray painting,
earth so dry
the ground can be heard panting,

but he hasn't long
and he knows...

careful 'bout relatives,
cautious to let whereabouts known,
best to be hidden
all alone,
disasters occuring by droves naturally,
if it ain't one thing it's another,
props to
Richard 'Dimples', my daddy, mama and grandmother-
people passing on and so soon,
but it's ok
his is shorter than ours,
soon the masquerade will be over.
