Living Flawless Lives

Those in positions of leadership,
Finding time to apologize...
For acts of temptations,
In the hopes to restore their blemished reputations.
With a resetting of them to have people believe,
That being human has been their biggest mistake.
And this has brought into their lives tremendous grief!
That has become too unbearable from them to release.
That is unfortunate to hear and have revealed,
For those among the self righteous...
Who have come to feel about themselves,
Better off if their own discretions were kept concealed.
With a knowing this appeals to those living flawless lives!

'How dare they remind others of their human qualities.
How disgusting and appalling these times have become.
Soon it will become fashionable to admit one has sinned.
And have lived lives secretly beset by temptation and filth.
Why can't they be quiet and live in denial like the rest of us? '

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
