I Do Not Envy You


Women of easy virtue
grace your court

They bring wrath upon thy bed
You are the liner that covers
their nakedness

The Knight that share their shames
But I do not envy you

Light always come before darkness
Nightfall is at hand

Pray if you'll ever tell the story
Nightfall is an axe in the wind

Government is the man I do no envy, politicians 're the women of easy virtue whose wickedness, fraud, assassination, embezzlement and cross misconduct has plucked the nation in the nightmare we re having today.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
