A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Witch Hunt


Breathe out
flame, and fume..

for what?

Some dragon!
Lost , and searching….

A poor village-
impudence of innocence-
All fair play,
in that witch-hunt.

Breathe fire,
Tame the cowering crowd-

And another tyrant
from the Staff of
The Death God!

Human? One wonders…
The next lesson to unlearn…
