Witness to a Street Fight

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Wordle #107


Enticed through the dark hole

To the dead-end of violence,

Under sulphurous yellow lamplight,

You stand on the edge of a vitriolic fight:

A crooked, cryptic vision,

A lead and skull collision,

A crashing kuebiko

Deep in your greasy marrow-

Bone – you know

You shouldn’t witness

Such mindless

Hooliganism –

It’s the schism

In the human
