Dizzy Arrows

from by James Nisky



At the lion's head I leap
Dizzy arrows fall asleep
Into strange nations after dark
Upon some unknown mark
Write your book of perjury
And detail the lies you seize
Regarding your misplaced crusade
And some new personal campaign

Will you clean the dirt off of your hands?
Before you write of foreign lands
Lay some ointment on your brands
Finding treasure in the sand
While you soak your blistered skin
Acned with puncture wounds from pins
And nine abrasions from the wind
Around your lacerated chin

From your podium you preach
To every dirty dog you reach
Not hearing the sleaze you bark
And always fearing my remark
Although I died from leprosy
Shifty shadows follow me
Revealing power in your arc
Upon some unknown mark
