Poetic justice

entry picture

Some things said,

written,

released into the ether.

What be their value, 

if not to offend or appease?

 

If either, 

which? 

the more worthy of these. 

 

Freed as graceful doves,

or cast as spears of hate

are they not better loosed above?

to tempt an unknown fate.

 

Though some might bite their tongues to save

a life not worth its breath.

Others choose as foolish brave,

to spend their lives in death.

 

 

"spend" is to mean sacrifice in this context.

Maybe too subtle a tribute for some to notice.

Enjoyed. J
