WP Daily Prompt: bludgeon


We needed pins and screws to hold us

still and steady as changes were made.

We needed the pin-point accuracy of laser surgery

cool heads and honest hearts

we could do this if we were patient and careful

we could

survive the shift

the new beginning

the tentative steps of a newborn foal

destined to greatness

we needed above all

faith and courage

but instead

it is the bludgeon

instead we got

the crushing certainty

of blind, flailing rage.
