Sonnet And Rhyme, A Double Presentation

Sonnet And Rhyme, A Double Presentation Are Poets Truly Born To Be Cannon Fodder Heart struck, blood-let by black arrows thus shot within soul- can not poetry reward, those that ink giving freely all they got playing face up, each and every card? Does this darkened world its mercy show or instead- use its stony club to beat into a pulp, to immense powers grow, how its victims lanquish in sad defeat! Soul cut, by accursed blades of Dark's thrust humanity- loves many false parades with deception's horrid treasures or bust wherein truth succumbs to life's dark charades! Alas! As light is stabbed by wicked deceit dead lay on cold slab, tag on their cold feet! Robert J. Lindley, 2-21-2020 Dark Sonnet, ( How Reality Invades Life And Speaks Truths ) Note: Always this world rewards its wicked allies and punishes its innocent victims. Reality, its clever lies do often succeed because willful blindness is currently taught to be a golden path to take. Modern world teaches tolerance of evil- knowing that is a sure path to its victory over innocence and those that never wants anything but peace, happiness and that much better future for their loved ones and their friends.Poets seem to see this truth far better than most. Some few even darest to actually write about it. Edmund Burke once said: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Banquet At The Dark Knight's Castle Your damned lies, cast for fickle fame Muffled cries tis but a game... Hold your false crown, bow at cloven feet In glee you drown innocence's defeat... Your beastly black, a cloak you wear Fairness you lack harm without care... Pound your sad drums, dance as dark knight Eat molded crumbs expand your blight... Your damned lies, cast for fickled fame Muffled cries tis but a game... Robert J. Lindley, 2-21-2020 Rhyme, ( As The Waning Moon Sheds Its Golden Skin )

Yes, on earth it seems that wickedness is a winner but one day right will overcome evil and I think the time is approaching swiftly. Enjoyed reading your work. Sara
