NaPoWriMo Day#20: Write a poem with at least 5 words from the list given
Words I used: squander, mercurial, abscond, gutter, curl, ghost, ego
The first time I met you
You were seated on your throne
Squandering the choice the people had made
With your mercurial temper
And your flapping, flattering tongue.
Later I heard, you had absconded
With their money and trust.
Today I passed by you,
Lying curled up in the gutter
A ghost of your former self,
And I pitied you, for you
Still couldn’t let go of your ego.
