Manipulation and power will get you nowhere. Your life will go up... in flames.

Up in flames

by tompk1cassondra

Delilah Abell, beautiful and talented.

All women envy her.

All men want her.

But her eyes lock on one thing...

Power and success.

Actress by day

Arsonist by night.

Manipulation and force is key to her success

She auditions and is accepted

It's very rare that she gets rejected.

If she does get rejected, well...

They will surly pay.

Their company will go up in flames.

So as you can see the entertainment industries have no voice

Casting her as the lead is their best and only choice.

In a sad way, she gets way with it.



She even enjoys it.

A warning to all entertainment industries

The next time you see the name Delilah Abell

Remember to give her the lead role.

Never, never, never reject her

Or you will burn in her hellhole.

It's not difficult to recognize her

Eyes that are hazel, and bright as the sun.

Brunette hair that looks black from a distance.

Olive skin that's oil resistant.

From the looks of it, she seems innocent in a way

But as you know, your true self always gives you way.

Her indication is the look of hatred

Eyes changing into an even darker color.

The saying goes

If looks could kill, you'd be dead.

With her death stare, you can never get that image out of your head.

Once again I plead

Cast her as the lead.

Your company will be safe...

And not demolished.

But most of all

Make sure that one day she will pay.

Justice will be served

Her luxurious life

Will go up in flames.

This was wonderfully macabre. I loved the positive message even though expressed in a frightening way. I get the same feeling from your poem that I get from greedheads when I am exposed to them. Great poem!!!
