Manipura Four

The ego has landed
Like shit in a sandwich

The outside looks harmless
The filling is charmless

A perceived slight is
Fuel for narcissistic spite

You’re a humour free bore
Show ego the door

Written whilst listening to 'Can't Cheat Karma' by Zounds

Manipura is number four in a series of poems exploring the solar plexus chakra which I am writing throughout the course of this year. Others can be found at Lucyfurleaps Blogspot and the Lucyfurleaps poetry blog.

For One Shot Wednesday at the One Stop Poetry site
