Persecution And Betrayal

Persecution and Betrayal
walked together hand in hand.
Selfishly, spitefully, severing
happiness strand by strand.
They went down to the river
drowned Contentment there.
Then went searching for Love
but couldn’t find it anywhere.
So they then chased Innocence
frantically all around town.
They found it cuddling Peace
and beat them to the ground .
Goodness now lays in ruins
as Misery healthily sings.
Persecution and Betrayal
have become Queen and King.
