Theme: Duplicity

Persona

When you
See him in the
Streets….he looks
Sober and dignified.

The way he walks,
Talks and behaves,
He looks propriety
Personified.

But when you
Watch him in
Bed, he looks
Lust-crucified!

As if killing
All his decorum
To make sex
Glorified!

Comment Pungent and pity truth. Apearances deceive. Great job

Madame, I am speechless you find time to compose with such keeness while straightening out screwballs.
Bravol.
