The Imperfect Role Model

the-unperfect-role-model

Open your eyes my darling dear

your behavior's beyond the pale

if you would allow the fog to clear

your goodness would prevail.


Lately, you have allowed a figure

who you hold in high esteem

one whose heart is black as night

and whose purpose is to scheme.


Listen, to the words she spews

that are meant to lead you astray

from your fold's unconditional love

that you choose to keep at bay.


Your goodness has been compromised

by this wicked being

who you think you can't live without

but you know not what you're seeing.


A shining example of role models you seek

are to live their daily lives

spreading love to all they meet

not conspiring to connive.


Open your eyes my darling dear

your behavior's beyond the pale

if you would allow the fog to clear

your goodness would prevail.
