Lookouts and Watchmen

If you ever heard of this story
If you ever felt the presence of a stranger 
If his words were soft and kind
And you could see him smiling in his eyes

Lookout and be careful
The eyes are not the window of the soul
Nor are words as innocent 
As you may take them

By crafty words men will deceive you
And for the lack of knowledge you will perish
Yes men will try to outfox you
Because it takes a fox to catch a fox

Men watch for me 
Lookout I am coming
Just wait a minute
I’ll be right there

No wait maybe tomorrow
If I ain’t too busy
I’m sorry I had a lot to do today
Please be patient

Don’t worry my word is good
I’m not like those who speak with a double tongue
Think about the missions we’ve been through together
I have always treated you with mercy

Have I not?

    Hello Tim, i like the way you confess about what to expect in you. You seem to be loyal, and real. I like that. I don't know if i am a patient person. always~ Linda
