On Guard

A person who’s never on guard
Will never become a good bard,
For poets have eyes
That see beyond lies;
They stick to the truth—and that’s hard!

  1. So says the bard herself – which is true indeed!

  2. I’m feeling a bit guilty now as I don’t always tell the truth when writing poetry…well never in fact;, but don’t tell anyone else will you?

  3. Poets sound the alarms for sure. Not sure that anyone hears us.

      The truth of poetry endures long after the politicians are gone.

    Poets are thinkers and movers have a lot of meaning to it. This has been the case through the ages. Very true MMT!


  9. It is hard to tell the truth, but let us proceed. We will make a difference through our words.

  10. Great limerick! Poets have eyes, ears and truthful tongues.
