Random Poem:


Importance crafted in a stately face
With eyes austere, except a candid tone
And seeing, though with criticism one
Opulence their only aim and taste.
We lay like ornate figurines in place
As carefully they condescend the throne
To scrutinize the providential lone;
The indigents feign solace in disgrace.
Though maids condemned bear sufferance with pride
Contenders in a buoyant game of fate,
For gems lay surely buried in the sand
Blessed with fortitude, we here abide
‘Til gracious soul unbolts this social gate
And offers satisfaction with a hand.
