Communal decadence by Wacky Poet


Communal decadence

A place filled with unending revelries

Owning a heart that raucously parties

Along with a booze powered spirit

That rages in the dark like an angry spirit

Tending to it were strumpets roaming free

Trailed by decadent wallets known to please

Overtly engaging in their self-indulgent spree All over the beau terrain rolling in ease

Now it’s all being replaced by new gentries

Of whom are known a holy habitNegating all the land beauties and treasuries

Narrating a new way to live by bending knee


A place will be lost and splitWith a dead heart that never please

Saving that this communal decadence is slit

So strumpets again, can roam free.
