Lionel Derbyshire

There always is a
Once upon a time
Story to tell
When winters were flowery
And summers were shady
There was rain 
Splashing on my head
On occasion your
Conscience would ask
Did I do right
Was I a straw bull
Or maybe a
Cat without fur
Decisions were made
Did i bend the truth ..
To spread my obsession
To desolate the other
To lie about the other
And condemned the other 
Without their defence.
How true I see ..
Why the elephant's eye 
Is always open
It does not hide
From truth
It wants peace of mind.

Did I greedily take away
Those flowery winters
And shady summer's
From others.
Conscience ..
You prickly pear
Truth be told
