Alchemy (Blogophilia 18.7)

Gypsies,
Tramps and thieves
Leading Big Brother's parade.
Lullying, confusing all around.
Up is down
Left is right.
Base is gold
Silver is steel.
It is the Alchemist's dream
To posses and control
The stone of life
Ticking down
The bucket list
Of revenge.

  5. The Power that a singular one controls has a way of altering the life of others that are innocent pawns to the aggressors way. I like your take on this!

  6. This is a lot of "get even" you are wheeling about, Christopher. It makes one wonder, if granted wishes, would a significant percentage of said wishes be used to harm others, just for spiteful reasons... Really interesting spin on this week's topic, but isn't that just like you?
    Good stuff.
