Know Your Enemies! - Poem by Joshua Guillory

Enemies are those who wish you ill,
Who think of you with vicious disgust,
And pretend they are your friends still;
But when you fall, they're fill'd with lust!

Enemies care not of your trials nor strain;
Only from you, what they may come to gain!
And making sport of you behind your back,
Wave at you with smiles: most wily attack!

Nevertheless, some of them may well be blunt,
That they view you with their most vile disgrace,
And tell you face to face without a front,
They wish you'd always finish last in place!

    Thank you very much for rating high and sincerely commenting!
    I think I may change 'end up in last place' to 'finish in last place' :)
    Peace, love, and light (You look or favor some of my family members in Texas) :)
