A Good natured Grumble

Updated on March 7, 2011

He sat alone

quietly considering

wondering if any one saw

that child there

looking or staring

'not another one' he moves off to another place

He sat on a park bench

a silver hair walking by

looking at him now with a wary eye

"Have I seen you somewhere before"

"I am sure it is possible I hvae one of those faces."

the man grunts and nods

'that must be it' the gray hair thinkes

the other man feeling a narrow escape

'no place is safe' he admits.

He didn't come to be noticed

having a job to do

most unpleasant

it won't be so bad if he was of men who sang

he never had the voice to

nor played a harp

no fingers to strum

all he knew was the pointless sword

and scales now and then

balancing them all on the strength of his pen

A memory of  horror and insanity

more then conscious of the strife

not shocked at all at the evil and din

not pleased with the nature of men

what do they want him to say when they see

when he cant help how he glows

the face shows at times you see.


So he became mortal

so what, big deal

it didn't change who he was

it didn't change the real

and yet others argue

thinking they have a beef

they set the law at naught

expecting no rebuff to stand.

but this man isn't given much to contend

he is right and it doesn't matter

if he is clear

their fate is sealed there

so whats the point in being right

before he has the other seal.


On he goes and trudges

a story too black to tell

not known by the masses

in his own private hell

to think that and heaven

for him one and the same.

No they just couldn't understand

or believe it any more then his name

lets say farewell to our hero

unknown or understood even less

don't worry about the rest

just go on your way

its just as well you do

you didn't bow for his brother

the wise prophetic Jew.

      I won't argue with you there. It is the reason for the good natured grumble lol. Sometimes the lack of body language to watch makes some jests hard to detect.

      Sorry, I was being sarcastic! It seems to me, it is the prevailing method today.

      That would be rather self indulgent. It works better the other way around I assure you.

      I thank heaven for that. I may not always get such leeway but I will take what I can get.

      Ah, one of my people...Different and cutting in it's presentation. This too can be interpreted in many ways, depending upon the reader, Jaggedfrost.
