Vainglorious Parley

“You coveted Paradise

Commanded my sacrifice

                                And, cast me from my pinnacle.

I whined with a jackass’ bray,

Turned my back and went astray,

                                I guess I’m an imbecile,

    1. Thanks, M. Zane. Actually surprised you enjoyed that one! It has secular undertones, especially tied back into the title. The speaker’s surrender is feigned, masked in his vainglory. In other words, he is trying to weasel himself into forgiveness while still attempting to share the blame for his fall from grace.

        Thanks fro the elaboration. I actually picked up on that. Though I consider myself a spiritual person, I am also a person and can appreciate a wide spectrum of ideas. I love all types of writing for the most part, Peace. ~ Michael

      2. I appreciate your open mind, M. Zane! I also am deeply appreciative of your respect for others and their voice in writing. It is both noble and integritous (I might have just made up that word.) 😀
