“ The Dark Side ” ~ of man ~

Of man we hoped
While we ignored,
The dark side
Of this being,
Thus would suffer
His betrayal,
Whilst he misused
Our naïve trust,
Hence so bestowed
He’d fail be worthy,
Held higher mortal…

Granitic he levels neath
The surface of intent,
An immoral creature
Of life form pitiable,
That but abuses
The innocent beguiled,
Fellow mortals
Who for the while
Find this being,
A peerless creature
Chosen to elect as leader,
To blindly go on trusting!

“ The Libertine ” ~ moot of noble mind ~

 

‘Tis said of man

The libertine,

Be morally moot

Of noble mind,

And wily so to boot

Will disabuse,

With wanton use

Maids who trust,

Would so dare

Gratify his lust,

Whilst he believes

His actions prove,

He idolized

Those he misused,

In varied guise…

 

Hence naïve women

Unmindful thus,

Will soon fall prey

To his devise,

If chance they must

Dare be in reach,

When he’ll enchant

To mesmerize,

For decadence

He’ll exercise,

On gentle mind

Or femme fatale,

Who be so careless

They be lured,

By the disguise

Of libertine,            

The morally moot

Of noble mind!

 

“ Breaking Rules ” ~ that favoured fools ~

 

I can yet think

Of years misused,

Forced to ignore

Such clever ruse

That favored not

Being explored,

And so abused

Left us indifferent

To breaking rules,

Thus giving way

To satisfying

Our aspirations,

Might offer why

We did survive                                             

Beyond an easy alibi…

 

Of breaking rules

We set the bar,

Avoiding lures

That favored fools,                                 

And might abide

Impede our stride,

If memory serves

Most rules that be

We’d broken every three,

With honorable intention!
