Rotten GUARDen egg (A Poem)

-BELLO, I.O.

When the guard is a thief,

How do we lift the whip?

When the guard aids the thief,

On whom should we test the whip?

When the guard shields the thief,

How should we place our lips?

When the guard craves the thief,

Our fears only become deep.

When the guard steals from the thief,

Who should we brief?

When the guard is a thief,

How heavy should we lift the whip?

When the guard is the thief,

We only bark at it;

When the guard is the thief,

They pay lip-service to it.

When the guard feeds the thief,

We become furious at it;

When the guard smiles at the thief,

We become curious at it.

We pray the guard hits the thief,

So we can rise above grief.

We pray the guard tames the thief,

So the latter sees mischief.
