           Life is a wife

The best for me will ring a bell,
The rest can all, just go to hell.
It is the banner that some wave.
Perhaps a seeker, or a knave.

I've seen the banner in the flack,
I've felt its touch upon my back.
I've heard its voice in simple say,
I've seen it pass along the way.

Where lies the petals of the rose.
I sniff the air the perfumes pose.
I've learned the odors of request,
Acknowledging the very best.

I do not say them false or true,
This is an answer up to you.
I only say beware the beast.
That offers up the most for least.

Appraise, your answers in your life,
For your answer will be your wife.
