Image for the poem sideways smiles in the land of Nod

sideways smiles in the land of Nod

beautiful, dutiful, and sly
wisened and refined
quietly I come...deadly
you will feel me where it hurts
there is a weapon pointed at your head
you don't see it?


eat off your own plate of sin
there is no such thing in my language
it's all fair game
with manifestations and infestations
you will pay taxes

don't think to feed your greed on my station
you will pay to play
I'm not angry
just riding the waves today
writing wrongs
making an even playing field

some of the fiercest warriors are poor
the HIerarchy is complacent
with no real loyalty

I'm connected and ever so protective
I won't be marking them as mine
you won't even see them coming
until they've stormed the door

don't come crying to me
when war has hit your houses
you've been've earned it

I take into consideration
those who have crossed lines
to comfort me in a weakened state

yes I see you beautiful, dutiful, and kind
if I hide matters from your mind
internally you'll know why
there are subversives that would press in on you
with ethereal tracers...mark you

don't fear even while at rest
I am working settling scores
dark stars under the cover of magic
get what's your today
