TWO POEMS: To the heartless, To the Brave

To the Heartless,

Your action that soon dries off
The coward mind concept thereof
The filthy oration you gave
Never grew hope even at your grave

Let the sword fly so high
In the justice cottage it would still lie
Blow the flute of war to the air
He house his head in the pillow for fear.

To the Brave,

Seeking courage bite and be dogged
Blood drops, but death only once naked
The lips that’s sweet still with truth
Their tongue of sagacity fond grows
Mending mendacious-covered to show
They pass on, but ever remain ripe their fruit.
