Do Good Men Count Sheep

Do good men count sheep
As they enter dreamless sleep.
And bad men count heels
(And, losing count of deals
Done for fun
Fall into a troubled sleep)?

Do good men cherish each part
Of a lover’s heart.
Whilst wicked men
Take up their pen
When a girl departs,
And immortalise them in art?

      Thank you Lorraine. I’m delighted you like this one. I wasn’t sure whether the poem should consist of just the last verse which could, I think stand alone as a poem in and of itself. I originally penned 3 verses but, on reflection deleted the middle one. Best wishes, Kevin

        That is just my personal opinion Kevin. I just like it as it is. Have a lovely Sunday x

    I think the first stanza sets the scene Kevin. But I agree that the last one could stand alone. Personally I like it with both stanzas in. I like the idea of counting.
