NATIONAL Poetry Month – Day 14: Wandering Savage

It is Day 14 and another two part prompt with wandering plucked from the internet and savage suggested on Facebook. Today’s poetry form is the rondel.

Wandering Savage

Against the grain of civility’s decree
the wandering savage travels far
with selfish notions strange and bizarre
No rhyme or reason anyone can see

Along the roads, towards the sea
forever following his peculiar star
Against the grain of civility’s decree
the wandering savage travels far

And in his wake the innocent flee
while he laughs his au revoir
preening his worth as a self-made czar
Never heeding his blood-soaked spree
against the grain of civility’s decree

  1. I like this! I should have been following these more closely! It’s difficult to write a set poetic form like this and have the rhymes and the rhythm come out as they should. By the way, you wouldn’t be thinking of a certain President of the United States here, would you?

    • No, although there may be unintentional similarities. It was more a general musing on selfish behaviour putting people at risk.
