Post-truth Kane

His life, a breeze,
a journey, danced with shadows;
he twisted ink to cue the spark
that opened greenbuck pockets
shimmered darkness
lulled with lies.

Lost at last
in shark-grin melt,
post-truth-bubbled bad
he leaves in skip of breath
rosebud scarred
globe-jar-spilled as Kane.


This is my Quadrille for dVerse that uses all the words up till now. For those that are not familiar with Citizen Kane, just watch it. With post-truth government I see a rise of new media tycoons. Just remember Rosebud, before it all comes to an end.
