Underdog Days


Underdog Days


There were times

when I had

to remind myself ..

She had a thing

about losers,

the homeless

and for orphans ..

Then of course

there were also

the times

when I was forced

to acknowledge ..

She had a thing

about justice

and went down

on abusers

with an iron fist

and a loathing ..

But then again,

there were those

times when I just

had to remind

myself ..

she loved victims,

the wounded,


and the starving ..

Yet though

there were also

a few occasions ..

When I was

forced to convince

myself ..

She chose me

for some other odd

reason, entirely perhaps ..

          I know you like and encourage frivolity down here in the comments space ..but I do note and admire the structure of the works you put up on MPS... though I'm sure that in the end they have a wider audience who don't bugger about as happens here....

                      so happy you've found yours Hyung
                      a most worthy dedication
                      such a sweet read
                      (it takes but one, to accept us
                      with all our fallible faults, bared naked
                      our ugly, mercifully acknowledged
                      forgiven and caressed
                      by a knowing gaze and an Aurora

                      • Neville

                        Bless you brother Mek
