Political Dragons


How many more of your patriotic sins are you phoning in today?
Every jingo-loving bastard turns up to have their say
Right when I thought it was safe to come out from under this rock

Dragon, rippling across a dark and troubled sky
Reflects my mind perfectly, small thoughts gurgling
As the huge ones flit by unheeded, to points unknown
Gorgeous, compelling lies stain our minds
Over and over, spin it up and make it LOUD
No relief from the heat of the day’s sad rhetoric
So, here be dragons, just… none to slay

          Another trick I use a bit is chrome – duplicate the chrome layer and then a “find edges filter” and again – fade the edges into the chrome

          And there – petal – endeth the lesson…

  3. […] it should be noted – and it was remiss of me not to mention it on the post –  THIS, which appears further down the list, was inspired by a banter and acrostic TJ and I engaged in a […]
