Singleton M. Tate


Brutally Honest


Speak of what>>> nothingness
Apocalyptic words that rain
Typing fierce>>> lion
Clawing at my brain

Alligators born to>>> prowl
Sensing food is near
Tearing growl>>> frozen
All things once held dear

Prideful abience>>> reveal
Boney flesh cut limbs
Brutally Honest>>> invader
Sharing average whims

    Oh wow...i never read a national geographic documentary in verse... that's what it is...
    graphic raw and powerful...touching and gripping....
    dramatic mosaic of canine power applied to life in the concrete jungle

    nice
    cheers

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
