Little Roses
by John Stevens

Beware of Roses in
Little Boxes
Given to you by
Little Foxes
To turn your head
Their way
With the sly words
They say.

Little boxes turn to
Little caskets
Burying you in
Was not ask it
To rip your heart to
Little Pieces
And feed you to
Origin: far recesses of my brain.

    this is good

    Do the foxes soften up people for the wolves?
    Thanks for reading. Camille

    The foxes distract you so the wolves can pounce and then the wolves give them the scraps as pay off.. lol.. Good read:)

    I think the foxes evolve into wolves before your eyes. The box is deceptive. Like a rose, it’s pleasing to the eye, but dangerous to hold

    The boxes turn into caskets or coffins to bury you in after the deceit and treachery of the rose giver. Thanks for commenting Erin.. It is good the young recognize the dangers of manipulators.

    Resplendent pearls of wisdom in this excellent inking, John. So well expressed through both your words and imagery. The Fox is easy enough to see, it is the Wolf who wears the sheeps clothing we need to be aware of – LOL!!! I love this write, John. TFS

    Thanks Mari

    Well said John. Enjoyed it.

    Thanks James. Reading many of these on HP seems to indicate sly little foxes doing their dirty work and demoralizing their “victims” to the point of falling deeper into the pit.

    This is great! I really love the end ;)

    John Stevens Sep 18, 2010
    Thanks Nikki. Glad you love it. See any WOLVES around lately?

    Very deep write John, I like the recesses of your brain……:))

    John Stevens Sep 18, 2010
    There are things in the far recesses I prefer to leave there. Every now and then one pops out for a visit and just to say “Hello Poetry”. that did not come out right. It accounts for the weird sense of humor….
    maybe. Thanks neva
