Good morning! I’d like to welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner. I’d like to take a moment to welcome back Ed ireland and his poem, The Shadow Knows, from his book, Forgotten Treasure, available on his website (Check links below).
The Shadow Knows by Ed Ireland
Evil hides in shadows, hidden by deceit
To find their face one has to be a sleuth
And so I slip to shadows covering the street
The illness will be cured
The Shadow knows the truth
Evil is the killer and apathy his deceitful knife
Perhaps done in purpose, perhaps by trusting youth
In shadows I waited hoping to save the life
None can say
But the Shadow knows the truth
For now I’ll sit and wait, the evil hasn’t passed
They think I was plucked like a wisdom tooth
From shadows I’ll watch the dissidents amass
On my behalf
Still…the Shadow knows the truth.
Awesome poem! Thank you for sharing, Ed.
