When people ask, do you disclose your preference?

Our empathy is endless

borrowed and defenseless

feathers in the fog flapping

bloodied fingers feeble tapping.

We seduce a sudden smile

comfort and crass across the mile

marching the sheep into the fire

the undisputed champion liar.

Our wayward judgements

are moral entrenchments

sewing ditches

with the promise of praise

from the mountain jury

in moon’s mad haze.

Update:

Update 2:

angrypete-

You're on it.

Update 3:

Elaine-

Not really...We someitmes personalize the "plight" or situation of our home or country and we are usually less wise because of it, or maybe even judged by the country/mountain through a dim and crazed light.

Update 4:

I think this will be a rewrite for me.

I refuse to blame a rhyming scheme for my message being missed...

A challenge!

    As the jury (voters) reaches the verdict who is going to be the president, all promises 'd be forgotten, and by

    "bloodied fingers feeble tapping

    marching the sheep into the fire

    the undisputed champion liar."

    and all done according to

    "Our wayward judgements

    are moral entrenchments

    sewing ditches

    with the promise of praise"

    from the very jury, living in the same state of chaos.

    Hm Marching the Sheep into the Fire?

    Well in the Bible sheep are lambs of God or (gentiles) followers

    so are you saying that Many persuade others to follow them?

    And into the Fire well MAYBE you never meant to be a religious

    word But what I can say is that it seems clear to me from re reading this That People Persuade the Lambs to leave the flock so to speak

    and join the non followers in the sin they create

    "the undisputed champion liar" well i would say that about sums it up

    for me as it states in the bible that there will be many false prophets who "seduce" the heart of man to follow blindly in sin without them truly realizing it

    OKAY so that was just my OWN opinion of the poem

    But it was really good!

    I liked the lines last lines

    "Our wayward judgments

    are moral entrenchments

    sewing ditches

    with the promise of praise

    from the mountain jury

    in moon’s mad haze."

    We judge others far too quickly these days

    And Promises are always broken

    Not sure about that last line though?

    in Moons mad haze? hm i guess It means our self inflicting ways?

    i dunno lol

    well thanks again!

    I Learnt along time ago Sir,

    That no amount of emotions shown,

    No hapless loss, in longing, is sown.

    Only that, I wish this way,

    Defied and left, will come, what may.

    My Heart once opened,

    Closed once more.

    I Live for the Day.

    Expect nothing, so nothing is

    Denied me,in my struggle...

    For Self.

    I read this a couple of times to really try and grasp the meaning. From the first two lines I thought you were referring to our nation and the state its in. I fear I have missed the real meaning

  • Its quite good : -

    Promises promises promises amore

    For little souls in silence implore

    A little kindness, a moment of your time

    What matters to you, for one instant

    A little peace, a drop of love, a grace

    From he who efface with audacious blaze

    On our behalf nations to ruin

    Remains aloof for one so bold so estranged

    A smile maybe, a gentleness in your tone

    To build my home in your little world

    Of dreams and vows made impromptu

    Awaited in anticipation for your coming.

    Not you nor I, a little dwelling, a love

    A child and happiness flowing

    In peaceful climes neighbours friendly

    No great boons surely, for one so powered.

    To trust and have faith, comes liberty

    A freedom from the pangs of fear

    Or need, or trepidation, a request too much

    A little moment of your time.

    ...

    This is powerful. I can't help but think you're speaking of the U.S. imposing it's views on the world, all the while sending our men and women into the fire.

    the empathy is endless is too good, because it makes sense to me that we identify with others in parts and bits in some way or it would be impossible to associate with others who are in a huge numbers

    Lots of imagery, real and virtual, in this one. We all need strokes, but at what price?

    EDIT: Seems I missed the core of this one completely. Oh well, can't win them all!

    I had to wait around for some other answers to help give me a clue on this one, DMag....loved some of the phrasing, but like angrypete, must confess....I missed it, until you told him he's on it...so.......

    the meaningless of it all at times???

    I'll have to ask pa.....!

    ma

    Source(s): Wow! I think Danial got it, huh??? Now it all makes perfect sense!
