Rot Of Anarchy

cobwebs

it grows more
fractious day by day
patience is a waste
for reasons I
cannot explain

I now see things
you’d rectify or ask
of me – effects I’d
never seen before
the change

cobwebs spread
and dust affects in
ceaseless gathering
plants despair in pots
aggrieved

where your signature
is writ a test begins
on unanimity
once always
sure in you

inadequate to cure
the status quo
without your counselling
I cannot stem this
rot of anarchy
