Earth Takes a Round,, 3WW

Devout, Indulgent, Smug..

He is different
devout and indulgent.
World, labels him a smug..
Nothing changes,
neither the world, nor him..
earth takes a round
a beautiful rose blooms
only to get plucked...



  1. The world (or more often people) can certainly strike you down just as you begin to bloom..although maybe we can re-flower!

  2. We have an expression
    here downunder called the
    "tall poppy syndrome"

    if a poppy grows too tall
    or its flower too bright
    we chop it down
    no reverence for excellence
    or achievement (except in sport)
    in this wide brown land
    of drab grey conformity
