Poetic Respect

Loitering in the stygian, rogues will solicit their quotidian fix Obscuring their veracious ambitions, assets will cloak them in the mix Sanctimonious and brimful of malefic intent, they pursue credence from their chums Invariably legitimizing their actions, traditionally obscuring when the focus comes Rather than soliciting simple forgiveness, blame is promulgated on some other Devoid of artistry of their own, they undermine the function of our poetical brothers We must maintain decency, posturing behavior must not be protected Corruptive intent should not be enabled, the approach in which we write, must always be respected

I guess in the blogs we are the problem. Puzzling to say the least.

Well written Mark, respect costs nothing and many would do well to remember that. Hopefully we'll have a run of peace for a while. Greetings from Turkey. Tom
