Honor Among Thieves

Timeless Classics

*****

When younger I thought it my role
Always be in good control
Pain ne’er got from me a whimper
Nor would I ever lose my temper

All that self sacrifice got me
All that caution only bought me
To anonymously dance
Mid public indifference

No one thought me at all wise
More somebody to despise
Certainly nobody who
Anyone would listen to

Then came to me such suffering
As doth a good impatience bring
For those who practise any other
Than consideration for their brother

To past practises treas’nable
At times may seem unreas’nable
But along with it somehow
They listen more respectfully now
