Revenge and Spite


Ladies and gentlemen, if I may,
Please don’t turn your eyes away,
For here they are- the never contrite,
The irreverent team of Revenge and Spite.
Now I know what you’re thinking—How long has it been
Since dear old Revenge and Spite have been seen?
After all, aren’t they usually tucked away deep within,
Working hard to destroy someone’s life and dream.
Well ladies and gentlemen, you’ll be happy to know,
That the producers who booked them for our show,
Were able to get Revenge and Spite not just to appear,
But to bring with them their old partners Panic and Fear.
Many of you may already know that it was really Panic and Fear,
Who first helped Revenge and Spite branch out into their lifelong career.
But what many of you may not know is that it was Ignorance and Hate,
That allowed Panic and Fear and Revenge and Spite to really be great!
And so today for your viewing pleasure these Four Giants of Industry,
will pay tribute to Ignorance and Hate, the real powerhouses of History!

    This is really good Elena showing how certain emotions can
    lead to others that are can also be just as dangerous. Ignorance
    and hate are the culprits that wreaks havoc and starts a chain
    reaction that leads to destruction and degradation. An excellent write.

    This is a superb poem that is rich in content. I wonder how it has escaped the notice of the readers so long, as I see no comment here. A smart style, I liked very much.
    will pay tribute to Ignorance and Hate, the real powerhouses of History!
    The message well conveyed in a satirical way. (Report) Reply

Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
