manic madman rants and raves
then slinks to solitude
orange and rabid effacement
as spittle flies eastward

a longing for father
the seeking of love
and begs of papasha
to satiate the void

the oval noose tightens
in paranoid rapture
a pins and needles public
so salaciously waits

the tragedy is hidden
oblivious the cast
quagmired and weakened
constitutionally last
