thief of dignity
like lake mud
that pulls at
one’s essence
sucks it down
into muck
in the murk
swirling reckless
impurities
spoiling the
years of clean
motives a good

by one grave
mistake head
forever hung
down in that
posture of
shame clad
in mortified
homespun that
penitent weave
only men of
true conscience
can know
how to wear
