UNDER THE WIRE

UNDER THE WIRE

What do you think would transpire,
If a poet worked under the wire…
Against what he’s told
Being so bold
Refusing what his boss required?

I tell you he will have sinned,
A predicament I was in…
Under radar
Spreading poems so far,
My foolishness did me in!

Having twice been caught
Disobeying DEFINITE-FRAUGHT
WITH FIRING RISK
Having failed my task,
Of making good what I was taught.

So now I stay above board,
It’s safer than reopening sores…
Attention I hogged
Can be seen on this blog,
My intentions are safely moored!
