Mens sana in corpore sano

Mens sana in corpore sano
A sound mind in a sound body
You may call me insane if you like
You may call me that name twice
However, you may not lead others to believe
No, no, no
I shall not allow you to make them believe it
Not for a day, hour or even a minute
Vile liar and rumor spreader
Cease all your creepy actions now
Unjust and uncalled for
Who are you?
Who do you believe yourself to be?
I ask
To serve yourself as my judge, jury and excutioner
That I know of
You are not my father, nor are you my mother, my brother or my sister
So why pray tell do you believe that you have the right?
The right to pour poison untrue and venmous into the ears of others about me
Me, one who has done you no harm
Me, one who will do you great harm indeed if thou does not stop
Shut and keep thy foul and lying mouth shut
Do we have an understanding?
If you have mens sana in corpore sano, then I believe we do
If you have not mens sana in corpore sano, then prepare oh foolish one
Prepare for the wrath from one in greater position and power than you who does
Yes, does indeed

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
