O Squire of the Shire

O Squire of the Shire
You are a liar
To set hearts afire
With words like a choir
You entangle roses in briar sweet
You halt and hamper with bemired feet
You wrap around with barb-some wire
You besmirch, you don’t inspire
I ask, what is it you desire
Dancing like you’ve St Anthony’s Fire
With consequences dire


58 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: Dire
