Margo's Lament


Margo's Lament By Tyler Horn

Consumed by

Illogical outcomes

Ease my mind

Of the sleepless nights

Cease this disturbed respite

Running away at great haste

From the corrupted blight

Escape with me

From the egregious lies

The ones, you know

Our false prophet contrived

The time is now

To save thyself

And burn it all away

Giving in to selfish desire

Holding contrite, not ire

Of the glorious victory achieved

Mercilessly cleansed in fire

Tyler Horn is a graduating Sophomore at LSSC. Tyler plans to study film at the University of Central Florida.
