Poets Beware


When you bare and open feelings,
Pull the skin off sentiment,
You're in danger of infection,
And so vulnerable to pain!

Poets tend to open further,
Their most being's private sense,
So their open to infection,
Caused by their own, innocence.

It's not good to bare your feelings,
Nor to sincere preference,
Weakness is to the beholder,
Poet dreamer, sans defense.

There! little girl; don't cry!
