Same Time Blind King.

Same Time Blind King.

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald
"

A study of my thoughts about the Tudors.

"

Sense lays heavy with rounded hooks on one’s mind,

A kiss once daring now lost to a king of church,

Makers now drift past peasants that know no better,

Easy to take steps to death away from his perch.

 

Taking prayers in darkened rooms might give impression,

Intimate meetings discovered but never given light,

Mighty words from w****s that seek to please cause,

Empires marked fiercely with Henry's sheer bite.

 

Better walks I've had for now they want me bound,

Letters written fall into the heat of open fires,

In each of us are friends that will turn our backs,

No thoughts, I search for wet wood,

Die they scream and chant more men to the racks.

 

Kind fellows never found against cowards of jewels,

Inspections are rarity never sought for those needing,

Never lay down with men that fear the ample breast,

Gone on the block, I say, Same Time Blind King.

What little knowledge I had of the Tudors was a long time ago, and not something I remember much of. As usual your use of the English language is is beyond mine, and your hidden messages too tangled for this old brain. Wish I had half of your intelligence, Thomas.

The history of England has always fascinated me, but I'm not enough of a scholar to get more than the feel from this poem. Excellent construction, and though I don't understand all the allusions, it is not so dense as to be unintelligible to me! Great work Thomas.

My minds blown! I had to read it twice just to get it fully though. But I'm just a kid so thats just youth lol. But other than that you encrypted your message beautifully such perfect words and dialogue. I can't wait to read another. Great job bud! :)

Had a Macbeth viewed the King's manner as lacking in the true, it may have persuaded him to blind himself to all that exists and reconstruct the ideal in the world. A good write. It whispers in the mind like the soliloquys of Shakespeare.
