Sunday Sonnet #4


Beneath veneers of sparkling etiquette,
There oft resides unborn Leviathan,
From Common Man to privileged Baronet,
Dishonesty invades whatever clan;
Ambition every gimmick can deploy,
Unmindful of due diligence or care,
Sometimes its very self it can destroy,
Leaving Good Sense and Reason to despair;
The Brave and Bold need wield the Sword of Truth,
With neither Fear nor Favour to the fore,
Though impolite be deemed to be uncouth,
Veracity’s due deference to restore;
As certain as the Light of Day demise,
So shall the morrow’s Sun again arise!

  2. People always like to talk about the certainties in life: death and taxes. Meanwhile, you are focused on the sunrise and sunset. Beautiful write.

  7. wow what a sonnet! “As certain as the Light of Day demise,
    So shall the morrow’s Sun again arise!” I love that line. It’s just perfect. I love the sword of truth analogy which flows through to the end.
