Once a criminal…..

That my thoughts are a criminal passion
is in no way a subject that’s doubted
for free thinking I’ve followed as fashion
and in life this philosophy touted.
Yet there are those whose law I dishonored
by pursuing the code of my reason
with numerous penalties encountered
a sentence equaled only with treason.
In reformatory bonds came writings
scribbles of an emancipated mind
thoughts as if hallucinated sightings
a Specter’s urgings while doing my time.
Though jailers reveled at capturing me
The reflective thinker inside was free.


Robert

No fair entreating the masses to stick up for your trochaic and unfettered mind...

Unfair... I protest.... Is anybody out there listening?

Nan, I didn't say it was a sonnet! LOL Just said I liked it.

RobertB, Here's a klenex. Now quit crying. You're gonna get the teacher mad at all of us. I don't want her mad at me because I'm taking the next class if I don't get expelled before it starts!

Why is that I hear the song.."He's a rebel" when I think of you here? LOL I thought this was a very good poem...even if it isn't a sonnet.
