Malice in a Meal

Malice in a Meal

Wagging tongues on tonight’s menu
Flavoured with malice and malign
Salted to cleanse out goodness to continue
Spite and cruelty its taste define

Take a serving, portion to fill
The wrecking carte du jour
Smell its spices to kill
Any absence of abhor

Gluttony is an ingredient mixed
Souls starved from esteem
Eating tongues of stings affixed
Feasting on vicious’ canteen

Latching and sharp is its side plate
Striking at compassion and goodness
Shrivel and shrink, no compensate
Droop and sag your fondness

Feasting and favouring revulsions banquet
Greed in excess, hunger crisis
Appetite wet in cravings ballot
Piling the plate with smears consensus

Puppet to puppet tongues play
Dining with wicked, brute, disgust
Swallowing spites stained pallet
Belly bloated from bullies crust

Digesting is exempt from your loathsome diet
Your soup of merciless drips from you lips
Absorbing only that which sets to destroy
Order: A meal to burn, a menu to deploy
