The Poet who Did Not Know it

A knife in the pen

Dispensing blood's inks

A shroud of mind

In each cell thinks

The sentence is endless

Each thought is perturbed

The notion of freedom

Becomes more disturbed

Fire the match to the torch to the castle

Instead use a cap, a gown, and a tassel

Such children's toys

Deserve to be broken

They are tools of destruction

Like words never spoken
