Rupert M. Loydell, Snake Oil

                                                                          Snake Oil, Image by Rupert M. Loydell 


An understandable kind of fear
rooted in hurt and bewilderment.

We may be alive but only just;
it is not the same as it was.

It’s true I like it here
but now I am ready to go.

No spare parts are available;
snake oil is all we have.
