A ROSE FOR A ROSECUTION by poefree

                 or  A COFFER OR A COFFIN 

“Rage on,” my friend said unto me
“Guard what’s yours with urgency
For walls can be scaled by scoundrels and enter your domain
So keep a steady eye on what treasures you were blessed to own
Small trinkets of gold or a large diamond ring
never allow a stranger to lodge with you or accept that which he may bring
Lest your coffer be missing when sister sun shines in a criminal’s eyes
Be wise and wizened  by wisdom wrought of rightful indignation
And let no man diminish you nor cause ye somewhere to surrepticiusly hide
Avoiid not the fact for every man to know where you alone can be found
with armaments for destruction, devastation  and all out war be yours
Allow the will of your castle never to be denied
As you hide not the pride you feel inside 
And grow greater from all the grief
Stand stagnant ready to be relegated to belief
The fact that no man is unable to protect himself 
if be he armed with confidence
The necessary weapon that will bring his enemies down 
And the conviction akin to the rosacution seen within his glare 
With a countenance of strength
For you were birthed, born, made, created, and molded by the steady hand of the 
overlord of our universe
So suffer no man’s ill will nor any fruitless curse
And as unfolds your destiny decided long ago
No matter what the masses may say
I say, Rage on my friend
Because to you I might seem very kind
But turn your back on my shadow  
and I’ll rob your  f******g castle blind               
       (2011.….Poefree
