acerbic

I have no ideas

on words used

what had been said

but I could feel in the room

atoms swirling between us

in this little group gathered

some comment had been made

there was an air of expectation

of unmitigated cruelty

some sarcasm acerbic comments

would be made by me

this was who I was

today always forever

& any sweetness light offered

would be interpreted

no matter what

I settled back & waited

for the attack to begin

what else could they do?

with this monster

up front & close

within their beautiful circle
