To Answer The Question

~“SECRET”, to be or not to be is my life long concession,
    essence of sacred heart or of the mind’s crooked obsession...
    having sacred purpose or a Neanderthal digression... 
    by reaching the peaks of mind control freaks of worldly transgression! 

~"BELIEVING" in our senators one hundred twelfth, Bull Session... 
    where wealth is represented, the poor face a great depression... 
    the poor, no score, special interest have the floor, closed session!

~"A WORLD POSSESSED", greatly depressed, indiscretion, repossession... 
    they say,  learn a new profession, "in this world of aggression?" 

~NEUROTIC DEPRESSION" [anxious  obsession] without expression…
   what do I choose...moral compression by legal profession… 
   of manic depression or sacred heart’s harmonic progression?

   For and in honor of Shani Fassbender
   And contest: “Tell me a Secret”
