baa baa black sheep have you any wolf?

Clothes of Sheep

watch the words and the clock
see the hands that move, tick tock
watch the face and hear the voice
see the innocent make a choice

close your eyes and shut the door
keep yourself safe from the those adored
scream for help for all in need
those whose life is fodder and seed

wrapped are the vile in clothes of sheep
while underneath are wolves that bleat
listen closely to the sound
growling, shaking the cold hard ground

clang the bell and reveal the proof
beasts are among the poets of truth
hide the sprites and faeries and elves
for evil lives where poetry dwells

not one is safe from vipers and wolves
haunting the good with angry ghouls
listen now and you will hear
the cries of the lovely who shed their tears.

This is so captivating. I feel like I've read a warning for something diabolical, something sinister among the literate lords and ladies. An oppression that would first seem like inspiration, only to overwhelm and devour its host. I read: Beware, the entertainer may also be the assassin. The sweet may be poison. The clown may hide the killer. I believe you were inspired to write this for a purpose.

This one truly makes me think!!!

Yes sir, yes sir, three traps full, spings to mind Kathy, this has a real thrusting rhythme to it. Yes we can all do evil and just general no good it poetic or otherwise communicative way, obviously they all can't be saints like you and I!lol

but no one is totally black nor white, we are all a nice olice colour such as Tai!lol true.

Anyway, the main thing to do, is not take the internet we choose to frequent, too seriously, remember words are only as powerful as you allow them to be, just like governments etc etc!!lol

That is my party on political speech on behalf to the 'truly good party' person!lol

Smiling at you
