Throwing Stones - Poem by Singleton M. Tate

The enemy supplies
them to anyone.

They're freely
given so pick up some-

It's very easy to choose
a target everyday.

Take the abstruse
atypical ones as your
adroit prey-

When you see
them launch
a fatal attack.

It's the kind
you're good
at and they won't
strike back-

Don't you know
what
'Throwing Stones'
will do.

It makes you
the simpleton
as they
Eclipse you...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Taken from the book, 'Open-ended Artistic Creativity'

'Those without works among you, let them cast the first stone'

In remembrance of those who live in glass houses....

I am reminded of:

John 8: 7
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
