You can always get what you want
if you’re prepared to break the eggs
for omelet or silence pens with lies.
Cause sword is might, and wrongs
makes right, on your one-man island.
Throwing glasses breaks the stones.
You can keep us closer, cause friends
is just another name for enemies
as newspeak scissor tongues.
Magaly wants us to change proverbs and use in a new poem at toads. I missed last weeks flash 55 with a touch of Orwell, so I thought I’d combine the two. I will also link up to Poetry Pantry tomorrow.
