Soothsayer

Another pious scumbag tatterdemalion
only success found in raging poverty
weathered face like the bark of a marula tree
preaching wrath in snow-capped clothes
sarcastic statements almost rational
a nitid future that will end dark and bleak
another supposed foretelling of our destiny

    Though I enjoyed to poem I must admit that it made me feel a bit uneducated when I have to run to dictionary.com like that :)

      I have to look up many words on dictionary.com to be able to understand definition or alternative definitions to be able to use them in the poems properly, don’t feel bad.
