Keep the secret


Keep the secret

In the secret storm raining razors of tongue
when sour-think-stink wafts about as sour-est dung
as the bird-brained mouths open to gossip so thirsty
Stand off to the side and bronze your words even if bursty
Yes bursty may they-be-bubbling round, round and around
Percolating alarming-ly – Yet.....Please stand your ground
Stand your ground– Keep it secret. Poem yourself if you must
Bathe in integrity-blossoms while others lay in the lie-down of dust 



  1. "Bathe in integrity blossoms..." Yes! Love the metaphor and the message of this, Pearl!

  2. NICE!! Love the message AND the delivery.
