Outrageously overdressed metaphors

masquerading as surreal images

line blank pages after pages

strutting saucily as if on a catwalk

shining gaudily in profanity

bizzarely thinking it would sanctify

the blasphemous thoughts they were harbouring

believing fervently in this carefully constructed chimera

the urge to be in the limelight so strong

ignoring common sense tapping at the elbow

the fear of simplicity, of ordinary

forcing them to take cover

in the euphemistic poetic devices

clouding the truth in layers of balderdash.



I am a stay at home mother and do freelance writing for school textbooks.
