Stand With Me Or Not - Poem by The First Shrike

A lettered man
that knows the law
is all I aks of thee

Whom forth integrity
will come
stand by me

Upon my life
no names
unto they

Would I so
to speak

So here me now
I beg no

Safely hidden
away I say

So betray
me no more
lie to me no more
cover up that no more

Built upon no truth

Only my freedom
all said proceedings

I now grow stronger
wont tolerate said

none in value

In my interest
Strike it from your book
only way
to cover
Compromise I will
come to me soon

    I'll stand with you, but let's get the spelling sorted so there is no misunderstanding. I guess there is a deliberate misconstrual built into the construction so as to differentiate, but you only leave speculation where there should be definitive postulates. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

    strike when the iron in the soul is hot
    thoughtlessness residing in the fissures of the mind
    even when it wont get caught as an afterthought...
