Broken Stars

A star broken in two
shines half as bright.

A house divided
is nobody's home.

A nation split asunder
has no founding fathers.

A world fractured
is everyone's wound.

Harbingers of flame, twitches
At the ankles like a winged
Mercury, blush

As elegantly attired radicals
Leer across the dinner.
While you dance, desperate

For affection among those
Insufferably full of
Themselves who enjoy

Belittling and demeaning
Whoever will not polish
The glory of their Achilles heels.
