A Fool He Was - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

It does not matter that leech claims she’s free of
guilt because the fact is she used hysterics and
tantrums to blackmail Gerhard into settling her
debts, she swindled him, changed marriage

Into a farce, playing Delilah to catch Simson and
make him her slave until he served his purpose,
then accused him like Potiphar’s wife accused an
innocent Joseph when he refused to be seduced

That he was the source of the strife, leech acted
like a parasite - sucking Gerhard dry - when she
felt free to move onto more exciting victims, she
simply informed him he was weighed and

Found lacking, she gives ‘mothers’ a bad name
with her games, using a child to defraud strange
men, makes sacrosanct marriage disreputable
by using it as a pretence to defraud a victim

After blackmailing him into emotional commitment
falsely agreeing to privileges then withholding them
pleading emotional upset about money - and when
money was given, leaving for greener grass

Rejoicing on Facebook “I’ll leave - debtless, the
reason for this escape, after accusing him of lack
of intelligence and personal growth since he could
not see that I openly disliked him from the start

Used a farcical accord to proof him a fool for thinking
love was mutual” what a fool he was, how could she
stay married to someone too blind to see when he is
taken for a ride, he cannot earn respect if he cannot

See when he is defrauded and swindled by a sour and
hysterical woman with only her own selfish ends in mind
– what a fool he is, how can any respectable criminal
honour such an easy victim, there is not challenge

Enough to satisfy her need for surf and sun - she
joyously claims on Facebook!

    Hello poet Margaret how are you doing? Wow! This was some interesting writing, a little too much to handle. I can't figure people out, it seems people are just out there looking to get hurt and used. Anyway, I enjoyed. Loyd (Report) Reply
