3 Word Wednesday  -  Allege Conceal Propose
Theme Thursday  -  cement

He is quick to act
A Godfather’s natural take
Will impose his will immediately
Let it be known

Don’t mess around with me!

Not to conceal his odds
The underlings had better understand
His purpose in life
Is to be all-powerful
Be it in strength
Or in finance

Work and perform with me!

Propose whatever to whet his ego
Hard hearted he’s no fool
Refrain from small talk
Never to allege against anyone within
Lest he gets suspicious of one’s agenda
If ever it comes to that
Then pick your choice
To be buried in cement
Either in a shallow grave
Or in a used oil-drum
It’s  morbid

I sense betrayal in seconds!

  1. haha wouldn't want the cement, that would be bad. If I see a godfather, I'll move far away from his pad

  2. ha. a very different godfather....i guess i would take the cement boots...that way i can at least see what is coming....ha

  3. I remember Marlon Brando in the movie a long time ago by the same name.

  4. That was good. That was very good. And I'm glad I read your poem on Britain's National Poetry Day. Many thanks. :-)

    Greetings from London.

  5. Godfather music, time ago....classics
