Dead dogs
kripto

Lost
 1
A voice
 2
Once familiar
 3
Now mere legend
 4
 
 
Shrouded lies,
 5
Fairytales
 6
Projections of superiority
 7
And wisdom
 8
 
 
A farce
 9
accepted
 10
Loved once
 11
Since,
 12
Amended
 13
 
 
But how?
 14
Is it possible?
 15
A magicians
 16
Illusion?
 17
 
 
Can the sequel change the premise?
 18
Of the franchise and the story?
 19
 
 
Worn expressions
 20
Mums the word
 21
The old dog, new trick
 22
They have assured
 23
 
 
To not be probable
 24
Or concievable
 25
No way No how
 26
Inviable
 27
 
 
But then observed from a distance
 28
The old dog shakes and prays and iches
 29
Suffering, he hangs his head
 30
And it stays there until the dead
 31
 
 
Too can hear the cries
 32
The voice, the words of ones demise
 33
Echoed once and twice and thrice
 34
No end in sight, how long is time?
 35
 
 
Forever?
 36
Forever did they say?
 37
I was great, and it was not forever
 38
But now in pain, I last forever?
 39
 
 
What injustice!
 40
consumed this place?
 41
Sadness, madness
 42
Served as the base
 43
 
 
Foundations fall
 44
And in their place
 45
Only old dogs
 46
Are seen in play.
