Dr John Celes
Sonnet: The Beast within the Man
The love one's parents show unto children,
The latter can't reciprocate at all;
The home of childhood years surely seems haven,
And parental care always looks so tall.
All looks so lovely when neighbors are loved;
The world seems wonderful when love rules men;
The charity some do get hearts so moved,
And earth appears almost akin heaven.
But not for long when dignity is hurt,
And things turn awry, world appears like hell;
As words of mouth become offense, curt,
The beast within the man begins to tell.
A wolf resides in human mind and heart,
That shows itself in adverse times by art!
