The poisoned pen

The poisoned pen

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

Just mess'n around

"
I can't take my eyes from the quill. 
That barbed instrument of guilt. 
Patently I wait for the sun, 
with hope its venom will wilt.
 A breeze tickles its plume, 
and I long
 to rage in its truth. 
I've placed it just out of reach. 
And find, 
a good nights rest 
will renew my will.

There is something I always remember, that 'what is phenomenal deserves and accolade.'
You thoughts here are wonderful.

Well written, Cherrie.

ah but...if it is the call of the muse...she won't rest until you pick it up...she is patient and expects that whatever it is will need to come out sooner or later.

I lived under the landing key for TIA, for about three years, I don't miss that.
It sounds as though someone is soon going to receive a really nasty note. If I were a newspaper editor or a congressman I would check my mail very carefully.
