Do Not Follow - Poem by Stephen (Steve) Howard

Do not follow, do not follow.
'Twould be unseemly, untoward.
Do not step upon my shadow.
I'm afraid you'll step too hard.

My shadow is my conscience.
My right or wrong, my yes or no.
And he says you should not
Do not follow where I go.

Do not follow, do not follow.
It would only bring us grief.
For in time you'd be but shadow,
and like time, I'd be a thief.
