Sunday Sonnet!




Loud effervescent outbursts of delight
Erupt, when entertained by trumpery,
When sense from nonsense flees like day from night,
Clear testament of human tragedy;
Beguiled by twittered galleons of fake news,
Frail vessels of fine truth cannot withstand
Relentless onslaught of contorted views,
Unless defence of Truth be better manned;
Though quills their thrust of influence may yield,
Ostensibly, to senseless blathering,
Yet, in the end, great power shall they wield,
When bells of verity again shall ring.
No greater moral posture can there be
Than unaffected, frank, integrity!

  4. Love the prolonged seafaring metaphor! Reminds me of Pope … or was it Dryden?? .. and their fears of truth being overwhelmed by chaos. I wonder how many households these days teach their children the importance of integrity?
