Trying Times

These are trying times
for the accusers and the accused alike.

We act as if we could choose
to play the tyrant now
and his servant later,
but we are all always subject.

We all get roped in time,
tied in knots, hung-up
on gallows of disdain,
in shallow dungeons,

bereft, unhinged, no one left
to blame.
