Dear Honesty

“Play nice with the other children”
my Father said to me
“I got no other toys for Christmas
& that’s not the mood I’m feeling, Sir”
boldly I reply

I follow where my mind goes
a wealth of experience from which to draw
& I bargain for ideas, among my many faces
My voice is true, my heart is strong
got a mean-streak under my control
& always keep an ace under the table
for when all I have is deuces
