Liberal Intoxication


I'm yet to heal
Pinch myself to know it's real
Maybe I'm just under this peel
All was done with utter skill
It hurts as a thorn deep in my heel
Did not he care about how I would feel?

Deep in my veins
The memories of what was doth travel
Beneath the deepest part it pains
Until every regret and guilt rains
My soul will forever be a hovel

I immediately forgave while intoxicated
All the happiness of this journey I abdicated.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
