The Fool

In the corner sits a fool,
her head, once held so high
now hangs between her knees
as hot tears of shame
fall silently to
drip onto her feet.

In the corner sits a fool
her golden locks,
once tossed in confidence
now fall victim
to the rough hacking of the
shears held in her hands.

In the corner sits a fool
the flowers of praise
once heaped upon her
now lie dead, turning to dust
borne away on the winds
of her own self disgust.

In the corner sits a fool
her fine raiment
once worn so proudly
now ripped to shreds
by the talons of the many
whose den she accidently stumbled upon.

In the corner sits a girl
broken but…
never beaten,
who belatedly realises
she has been played for a
fool

Her tears now spent,
she raises her head defiantly,
fixes a baleful stare
upon the cause of her suffering
and whispers…
never again
