Reversal of Fortune

Reversal of Fortunes


That puffed peacock 
bold, brash and confidently wrong - 
Now nestled in comfortably among the donkeys.

Reversal of fortunes knows humility.

Tears of regret now echo
replaced by unabashed merriment.

Reversal of fortunes - 
a serious matter indeed.

A wealth of knowledge once prized
when it is seen clearly -
now a cesspool of folly.

Reversal of fortunes brings decay into sharp focus.

The forever youngs parade no more,
where plastic cannot hide the time,
the ugliness seeps through the cracks.

Reversal of fortune - 
beauty has no sway.

Where strength and grit was the order of the day,
now frailty and faintness have made themselves at home.

Reversal of fortunes - 
where power turns to dust.

When you think you have figured it out
life suddenly proves to you how misinformed you are.

Reversal of fortunes - 
a lifelong lesson...
