Compromised Men?


Oh, we listen, we hear,
the invidious and wonder...
why compulsive men,
subject to the plunder?

Cut off a head,
or maybe a hand;
hack their feet if
a Payless brand?

Cheap shoes don't justify
macabre mores,
precepts inherent
old bible stories.

who are these
dissenters in what's
regrettable cause?
They, who in caprice
state compromise,
relent, don't pause?

I don't, so-o-o-o...
so my head
stays on,
still imperious,
a force and
persuasion,
at every occasion,
a Jewish brand?

furbished or feckless,
fussy or heedless,
or even...
the adamant Jew
maybe like you?

Friend or...
hmmm, fiend?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
