Shakespearean Sonnet

Deception's Net

by WryWriter

Thou cast thine net to tell youth lies ye troll
Do parch their souls prompt parts in learned trek
Set traps say trust then spring vile chat spin toll
Thy tart's foul guilt most gasp few grasp sized peck
Ye rend a path like thresh of wheat thus geld
Mere drops of rain in time doth beat sores surf
Do scavenge nations rife their future held
Now captive glen once prized perverted turf
But gents deny reject the sovran grant
Explore exploit beyond content stealth gnaw
Perceive thus heed revere repose such slant
Spurn challenge flagrant falseness Zion's flaw
Nay reck exacerbated trawls deployed
Reap fallow generations fields devoid
