3 Notes of Caution


Beware those who bleat injustice
Even as they bay for blood
Leading innocent lambs to the slaughter


Beware those who slither into your life
While they coil themselves around your throat
All hooded eyes, cold blood, forked tongue and fangs


Beware those with thick hides
Unable to shed their skin, or lose their spots
Predatory instinct, mesozoic brains



  1. I enjoyed that. I also have with me a message today:

    We have 140 contributions to date, and I am trying again to rope in as many contributors to the Poets for Peace challenge (in place until this the end of August). The many voices in response to this have been fantastic, and I’d love you to add yours (again, if applicable) if you can. Feel free to use an existing piece of writing or a new one asking for peace and/or about the troubled times in which we live.

    If you are interested, please leave your poem in the comments section of Neha’s blog and it will be added. https://forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com/2016/07/16/calling-all-poetscreative-minds-to-a-grand-collaboration-poets-for-peace/comment-page-5/#comment-19287

    Thank you –
    Your voice matters.

    We are so grateful to be part of this community where poets and creative minds from around the world stand together uniting for PEACE! This collaboration is open till August 31st and we hope to see more of you join in!
    – Neha
