While Humanity Slumbered

I was abandoned, attacked, set-up and robbed on this day

by someone I never knew I had to repay.

Vile words emblazoned on the drum

of this unnecessary conundrum.

Screams and threats were sated

she though I’d hate the longer I waited–

Time will tell

how humans always fail

to uncover the deceit of “me”

even while praying, down on bended knee.
