Power Asks

Power asks for too much
based on acts of thoughtless youth
pushing boundaries then deplored
in the time present now ignored
this pinnacle may be accused
against the weight of the abuse

Satan pleads for justice damned
at the coming of a lost dawn
towers stand in the light
ignoring taunts that bring delight
angels cry in dark despair
to a future none should prepare

morality has no bearing here
when a life of power is embraced
nothing less than wins are blessed
with religion near at hand
a conscience that knows the past
denies the sins fully wiped

with forgiveness near at hand
the mighty fist will always win
the lesser sex unduly whines
forgetting glory handed down
power blessing base desires
to hold the measure of earthly pyres.

Author's Note
The poem “Power Asks” was inspired by a poll that stated a majority of GOP supporters would keep Brett Kavanuagh on the Supreme Court if his past accused crimes were FULLY proven.
