THESE VEINS

Standard

Would 

That I 

Had 

More 

Mother Teresa 

And 

Mahatma Ghandi 

Running 

Through 

These 

Veins, 

Rather 

Than 

Mata Hari 

And 

Genghis Khan

MISUNDERSTOOD

Standard

I have 

Spent 

So much 

Time 

Being 

Misunderstood, 

That it 

Matters 

Less than 

A trifle 

What people 

Think of me: 

Having been 

Declared 

Decidedly 

Dangerous 

By the 

Common mind.
