' The Truth About His Place ' - Poem by RIC BASTASA

</>HE'D BEEN there
he likes it
he will be coming over
to stay quite longer
he loves every nook
of it
he has memories there
and will always wish
to be there
he knows he will die there
and it will be a great shame
not only for
him but for his family
as well
he is set to be there again
come June
till July
despite the storms
or whatever
he loves the place and will
always be loving it

same dirty place
for such a clean man
that he is known to be

same lust
same desire
same shame
but this is it
the truth...

    same
    same desire
    same shame
    but this is it
    the truth...
    We should face the truth with courage, a thoughtful poem.
