Sunday Sonnet!

Shadows (WP)

Wait! Wait! Resounds pre-emptive call of sense,
A hasty, thoughtless response to deter,
Amidst persuasive voices so intense,
The heedless lasting import can incur;
However good it be your mind to speak,
Prudence proscribes a cautious watch to keep,
Upon incautious, damaging critique
That can inflict abysmal trauma, deep;
Capricious as a potent lightning strike,
An uttered, ill-considered toxic thought,
Not only generates inflamed dislike,
But can ignite reciprocal onslaught.
In always finding pregnant pause to stare,
The wise regard each precious thought with care.

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!

At Rest!
A simple wooden cross defines the place,
At Peace!
A Measure grants to all a common face!

Youth,
Irresponsibly optimistic,
Carelessly courageous,
Leaps into the dark;

Common Sense,
Acutely Aware,
Ponders….

Silent Sharks!

En garde!!!!

En garde!!!!

When raucous tyrants roar without
And terror reigns within;
When expectation fears a rout
And thoughts are in a spin –
Let Common Sense begin!

Those little dogs have rowdy barks
Their masters well to please;
Mind those marauding silent sharks,
Your lifeblood they will seize –
Be armed with Caution keys!
