Prompted Poem, If I Had…

If I had the power of creation,
Strength borrowed from
godly err,
I’d bring the light into the darkness
And through its lens compare
Either giving mankind to harshness
Or leaving my choices bare.

In response to a prompt by Cubby


Shed that veil from velvet eyes;
Observe the the eagle and how it flies.
Study the patterns that you see;
Know those secrets which reveal me.
Appointed by the will of men,
I hold the power of fist and pen.
Privileged to an open stage,
I bleed Our will onto this page.
Until stillness has quieted the mound
And the flags of our foe decorate the ground,
Will our persistent attacks cease;
Only then will I grant peace.
