Compromised Men?


Oh, we listen, we hear,
the invidious and wonder...
why compulsive men,
subject to the plunder?

Cut off a head,
or maybe a hand;
hack their feet if
a Payless brand?

Cheap shoes don't justify
macabre mores,
precepts inherent
old bible stories.

who are these
dissenters in what's
regrettable cause?
They, who in caprice
state compromise,
relent, don't pause?

I don't, so-o-o-o...
so my head
stays on,
still imperious,
a force and
persuasion,
at every occasion,
a Jewish brand?

furbished or feckless,
fussy or heedless,
or even...
the adamant Jew
maybe like you?

Friend or...
hmmm, fiend?

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
