POETRY; WHERE EVERY WORD HAS SEVERAL MEANINGS

Where Every Word Has Several Meanings

We dare not speak in other than riddles

In this lovers world where no one is safe

And every word has several

Meanings and way too many eaves droppers.

Is this not the work of thy hand, Maiden?

If not, prey tell us please what other part

Of thy body would lead an orchestra

In such a malady of melodies

Of whispers and lies? And in such disguise?

But, we know thy hand well for it’s in too

Many pots; and doesn’t each of those pots

Call the kettles Black when their names are

Kindred and Ken? Oh, you’re not invited.

And what a tangled web you have woven

With so many of your spiders to share.

A Rebel without a cause; just a plan.

La Belle de Madison sings like Robin

On the Greene. Sing thy lonely song to the

Gray Fox and Princess Red and Annie in

The Maze looking for Gemma through the Blayze.

Remove thy mask Tallulah and forget

Thy Rose and thy Lilly on thy Voyage,

We know you by your web of woe and lies.

No doubt you know us by the love we share,

And we dare not speak without the riddles

In this lovers world where no one is safe

And every word has several

Meanings and way too many eaves droppers.
