National Poetry Month Day 19: The Lizard King #NaPoWriMo

Today's poem (on this Day 19 of National Poetry Month) is less of an original work, than a reworking on an older poem (first published in my book Tears of Poetry). I hope you enjoy this second take on Jim Morrison...



The Lizard King


Dark Rider of the Storm.
nighthawk above the streetlights

The poet with a voice,
husky and sensual.
Bleeding that lingering cadence
across the stratosphere

Showman, Ringmaster
to the screaming crowd.
Bring them into mind evolution
Revolution

You struck the fuse,
dictates of the muse,
and traversed the pyre
of your soul.
