Words splashed on paper
as prolific as Picasso:
vivid vermillion verbs
literally dance off your pen.
What colourful concoctions
your masterful imagination has
put into prose and pretty verses:
a collage of contradictions.
The adjectives fly with ease
by the press of your fingers
on the keys
Empty though –
Your legacy of shame
is to leave this place
Worse, by far, than when you came
