 NOBLE INTENTIONS

In the wardrobe of life,

For me it was always, a dress-up to the nines,

Where my intentions were noble,

Tongue a wee salty,

But my behaviour always upright.

*

And where amid the jungles of life,

Reside those robust egos of all kinds,

And where what matters is not the noble intentions of the tongue-tied,

But the crafty-slimy-sweet interpretations of the tongue that lies.

*

And while I moan and bemoan,

To the sad rhythm of life,

I also foxtrot,

At the dance floor of life,

*

While noble intentions are long-term,

Slimy-crafty and sweet tongue are short-term.

And upright behaviour has a fulcrum

And all in the anvil of a life-term.

*

But behaviour and noble intentions,

Appeared ancient,

For what mattered today

Was crafty tongue and its interpretations.

*

For if you want to rise,

Hold high,

The gossips and tricks of life,

And let noble intentions and upright behaviour,

Languish behind.

*

For in the world of today,

There is no respite,

From the chicanery of life,

To the dangers in disguise.

*

And while the crafty-sweet-slimy tongue,

clamours in glamour,

Noble intentions, salty tongue and upright behaviour,

Reap the long term honour.
