How Does He Do it?

How Does He Do it?

i reach a place that’s deep inside

a place masked by skin and clothing

a very dark and foreboding space

where i cling to my hate fear and loathing

a rancid turgid maleficent pond

of hurts, both fictitious and real

a cesspool of tried lied and denied

a place for wounds i won’t let heal

i document the wrongs and rights

indeed they are inversely skewed

of course i meant to be offensive

and yes i was being rude

you fucking people shit me to tears

you’re all so fucking dumb

willing victims of a factory stupidity

to which most of you succumb

submissively prostrate you present yourselves

there’s no way that i can miss

but bring it to your goldfish attention

you moan you shriek you hiss!

my pen is both arrow and sword

and are always ready sharp and drawn

with no shortage ever of targets

to be summarily executed at dawn

a crushing crescendo of scathing cheek

insanity charged with profanity

stand well clear of my scathing wit

as i remove the veneer of your vanity

sardonic toilet humour filled acumen

the whole process a cathartic relief

it gives me an out so don’t fuck me about

it has nothing to do with belief

you know quite soon i’ll touch a nerve

with all my literal literary poking

while i have no care for you or your feelings

how do you know i wasn’t just joking?

    Raw, powerful emotion. Excellent piece.

    😳 that ending. Every line was powerful and purposeful, yet the last line was quite impactful. It felt like rather than the words written with ink, they were written in blood.

    This is very in your face. I truly like it. Especially, willing victims of a factory stupidity to which most of you succumb. I nominated this for Poppy’s graveyard challenge.

    so passionate and a very therapeutic read 'a cesspool of tried lied and denied' was my favourite line

  • Donna Fox (HKB)4 months ago

    Brenton, this is raw and yet so relatable with that "I have no fucks to give" kind of attitude! It drips confidence and oozes authenticity! Great work!

  • Just brilliant! I also have some angry poems on my profile, if you want to check it out. I’m not sure if they are as good as yours though :)
