vowing no obligation
to covenants, revealing
loyalty in collusion
with the one who swears for sport

power corrupted
democracy is dying
while everyone sleeps


A Tanka/Senryu for Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge inspired by synonyms of the words: Bond-obligation, swear, vow, covenant, collusion, loyalty and Seek-plead, crave.
