Riding Undenied To Sit High On A Saddle


The tragedies that continue to plague,
A people delusioned with beliefs...
Approved and ignored as being okay,
To prey on those innocent...
Without consequences to eventually pay,
Has today depicted a society sick.
With people assuming they can do what they wish.

And entitled they perceive they can do what they please,
To destroy the lives of others and not have their own lives...
Threatened unexpectedly by misdeeds they leave,
Are a people inflicted with a growing mental illness.

A society continuing to allow these acts permitted,
Only jeopardizes those values pretentiously kept...
To defend falsities and deluded beliefs,
Kept impressive with hype but too many on the streets...
Weep!

While making attempts to sweep away,
Internal griefs they keep and with them stays.

The tragedies that continue to plague,
A people delusioned with beliefs...
Approved and ignored as being okay,
To prey on those innocent...
Without consequences to eventually pay,
Has today depicted a society sick.
With people assuming they can do what they wish.

But that day comes soon,
When deceivers who lie will have no place to hide.
And those who 'assume' they can used aged alibis,
Will find their disguises have left them victimized.
Truth comes riding undenied to sit high on a saddle.

'Why can't our deceptions get rid of it? '

Whomever believes truth can be deceived,
Are the ones yet to experience lives to live tormented.

'What a bunch of poppycock.
Once we throw some of our money at it,
Whatever it is perceived...
Will leave quicker than a tornado.
And we 'always' bounce back after one of those.'

You don't seem to want to understand,
With a sustained comprehension...
What it is that rides high on that saddle.
Close your eyes and try,
Removing the symbolism of it.
It will not be seen but felt to deal with.

'I'll take off my boots.
I don't want to be seen shaking in them.
Especially at the price I paid.'

Cherished are the words I 'use' to deny.

'Great lyrics.
Here...
You want some 'Bread'? '

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
