Complicit Silence


They say silence gives consent.
It is true especially of a tyrant.
When people obey his evil deeds,
And rival to please his sinful needs,
He then parts with the human soul,
And answers only his rapacious call.
If they keep their disgraceful silence,
He goes beyond any viable riddance.
He is not to blame for his massacres
As they granted him god-like powers.
It takes God to bring him down,
And rid the people of his crown.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
