COPLA VEINTE: This Bad Guy World


Expose the wiles of the Bad Guy
He’ll stoop low and use stratagem
And if he fails

He’ll cry foul play and devise ploy
Hold himself out as the rare gem
The World defiles

If you succeed in nailing him:
He’ll say pro patria mori
Or some such god

If you then let him play victim
You’ll fall right into his hands free:
Like him be sod

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
