Acquiescence*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



CDXCIV ~> Acquiescence*

CDXCIV ~> Acquiescence*
(Opus494 ~> Acquiescence)
A wink, a nod, and a roll of the eyes,
Proclaim complicity with the trespass;
Baiting with the promise of paradise,
Bodes the surge of adrenaline surplus;
Letting loose torrential excess pizzazz:
Nor balmy Ambrosial effervescence
Sweetens the poignance of acquiescence!
A nod and a wink and a faint chuckle
Constitute franchise confession of sins;
No matter how blatant or how subtle,
When tinkering with the fountain of pains
Everyone loses; while nobody wins:
Acquiescence mimics the two-edged sword;
Sterling presence cuts as good as your word!
You lose no distress when you acquiesce.
It just lies dormant for your last roll call.
Till then you furbish a prankish disguise
Something not too demeaning to the soul,
With hints of a redeeming principle:
Wan obstinate challenge to your patience,
Acquiescence undermines convalescence!
