Left Behind Valentine

Now the butt of the brute
Regains the throne of the world
The young made martyrs
To the old gods of power
The slick pig’s hour
Of paybacks and corruption
Of a less self-conscious strain
Always the ones left behind
Extract a violent revenge
Until someone says Enough
Of this human longing
This self-inflicted suffering
Can we not just eat together
Share a laugh a life
