Your venom is pretty and poisonous (Journography bits #7)

Updated: Mar 19

Your venom is pretty and poisonous

I can taste it on your lips

How did you ever get past me?

How exactly did you give me the slip?

How did you fool so many?

So many times and for so long

Like getting married for quick money

And then you were again long gone

But karma has a way of catching up

It’s there to show up truth from lies

It’s too late now for another act

Take a bow and say goodbye

You’re not getting any younger, dear

No time to restart engines again

You’ve run outta more fools to use

Not every sucker punch is the same

Been playing poker for way too long

It’s knowing when to cash it in

Can smell when someone’s bluffing

Playing the right cards is everything

You’ve played dirty and done the maths

You were looking after number one

Think I don’t know what you did?

How you even seduced her son?

Family is always everything

Family is outta bounds

No one comes between family

There’s always a guardian angel around

They appear in many disguises

And leave when their work is done

They’re patient and wait for the moment

When they see things coming undone

They know every dark secret

Payback time is shining bright

And then when you least expect it

He smiles and blow out all your lights


From the upcoming novella

“All The Happy Dirty Secrets”

Poem: You can float your boat

You can float your boat You can talk grand plans You can drop names like atom bombs But who are you kidding? And where’s the joke? It’s in every single lie you’ve spoke The joker wears a thorny crown
