................'Black Robed The Bench And Power'

Rating: 2.9


Huddled poor the masses, did you say, not I.
Whirlpools hide the dragon and it's eye.
Needles would I thread upon one point.
Before the Gavel falls, I'd hear your allocution.

While one was never made, ambition grew.
Each priest before his god, one never stood.
Here a rose and there it's bud, yet beauty paused.
Lillie's look caused her to Donn a rustic mask.

Love lines like this: Here a rose and there it's bud, yet beauty paused I am going to spend time with this poem & work on understanding the dept of how the title works with the stanzas. Thank you for slowing me down!
