Poem: Sinking Ship

Sinking Ship  

Tragedy oft befalls the man
That seeks to save another’s sinking ship
Your hero’s badge will not float
If you both go down like DiCaprio

So beware you of Savior Complex, you lovelorn and you Martyr Saints
For bleeding hearts beat twice as fast but half as long
Beware you Duty-Bound and Samaritans passing through
For eyes that see, but do not look, may miss the dagger of a thief

So let compassion have its place
Among you fair-hearted nobles, no doubt
But never let your heart rule your mind
Lest twisted fate turn you the beggar
And you pay the price for wrongs
You never did un-right

“Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own.” -Prov. 26:17
