People Can't See Their Misdeeds Diseasing


People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
And...
People can't see their misdeeds...
A destructive attitude.
No!
People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
And...
Infecting with a plague to them that comes.

People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
To think their protected within a fence.
And the evil they do to another is sent.

People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
To do to others what they think is fun.
And doing it to think they can overcome.
With a hiding in places from everyone.
To...
Eventually be stunned by the acts that they have done.

People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
And...
People can't see their misdeeds...
A destructive attitude.
No!
People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
And...
Infecting with a plague to them that comes.

People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
No they don't.
And people can't see their misdeeds,
Destroying everyone.
No!
People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
And...
Infecting themselves with a plague that comes.

People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
No they don't.
And people can't see their misdeeds,
Destroying everyone.
No!
People can't see their misdeeds,
Diseasing.
And...
Infecting themselves with a plague that comes.

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
