The coup

This body has been taken over
by a lower back
a citizen turned despot
suddenly nobody can move
without his permission

even the elbows
are at his mercy
and when they forget
when they fling
like they did when they were free
he sends his army of knives

and so it is up to them
to decide if he can be converted
or overthrown

will they march
or will they rust

he has taken over
the centre of this body
like any good coup
but he is outnumbered
and I just got word
they will retaliate
in the way he will never expect

they will love him
until he surrenders
their breath.
