Abandoned



Neglected and forsaken, a nonchalant cast off.
Imprudent and mistaken,
abandoned like a scoff.
Deserted and forsaken, a cavalier release.
Capricious and mistaken,
abandoned like a cease.
Unwanted and forsaken, a farcical rebuff.
Outlandish and mistaken,
abandoned like a bluff.
Discarded and forsaken, a principal reject.
Traitorous and mistaken,
abandoned like a wreck.
Recycled and forsaken, a casual rerun.
Disloyal and mistaken,
abandoned like a shun.
Disvalued and forsaken, a laughable rebuke.
Ludicrous and mistaken,
abandoned like a fluke.
