Fae and Businessman
Fairies & the businessman
Some times brought peace & others less
out alas, at crossroads they were led
Came from side of greenery a fae mistress
And from dusty gray a man of severe trade.
O thou didst thou come to slay to joy and instil woe
that the trees be cut or dashed
should we cry out to be like thee and build a wall
that the grove be well preserved?
Behold thou the creature of joy
how mirthful is the change and growth
new spectrum and tech we deploy
to enrich the lands by things never sought
Thou destroyst the flow well set
by the conduct so unbalanced
as the greedy endeavours do aspire
‘tis just folly to honour funeral pire
O as if thy folk would not have enjoyed
the parks we build and seeds we sown
and those that came in flesh of own
from thy race use our cars for comfort
And if we slay, right, so we will
by flame of thunder forests perish as well
to regenerate and allow novelties to dwell
Life is balanced if devoured by that ‘ill’
O that wit for dear Lord’s sake
The one to quote sir Wiliam Blake
To justify the malice done
We observe the cycle of life so I can tell
Many think that evil one
Be set boundless for the glam of Book of Thel
Dost thou not speakest as d’evils acolyte
a well-versed, smiling hypocrite?
And the heat ‘tween them was on the rise
thence lest veil of courtesy failed as disguise
Instead of them to exchange spits and be slandered
The countenance of judge’s robe the scene hath entered
For thine disputes I long have marvelled /// plural used to be thine or yours?
That the division in land be set to endure
in both times of growth and harvest decayed
in the lands so vast two could avoid such allure!
For Lord’s curse or satirical notoriety
why it lasts and cannot be
That two of thee can’t seek space empty
enough in new routes to set thy feet?
Where one layeth foundation
other is not destined to remain and bleed
Divide the world to chessboard motion
if thou pleasest, yet don’t dare to call it worthy deed
if all remain blind and proud behind a wall
to refuse to cooperate and blend for agreement
Louder voices in secluded vanity to claim in my hall
Treasures of strife one-sided be revoked from parliament!
And thus they wielded their heads both
calmed and allowing the other’s growth
It required time and initiative of compromise
to build bridges by industry in lands of old and wise
The fae would observe and admit
at bridge’s edge ‘twas pleasant to sit
and observe the water flowing calmly
that blessed remained for men’s throats, and not theirs only.
