Fragile

A connection as fragile as a pansy
in the path of a Panzer
is snipped by the mandibles of your almighty schedule,
or someone with a Mercedes,
a six pack and a cash stack.
Opportunities as fake as the moon walker
and his papier mache face,
lay Sequoias across my gold brick road.
When will the mirage catcher
banish the illusion thatcher?

  1. In this poem I liked ‘fragile as a flower in the path of a tank’ and ‘opportunities block the road like toppled sequoias’. At the end, should it be ‘illusion hatcher’? I thought it was a poem about frustration.

    1. If you want a crisper sounding rhyme it should be hatcher and if you want it to be an illusion with a conscious design opposed to something that just pops out it should be thatcher.
