Love is universal, no doubt but only when
one is loving universally, otherwise
love can also be those fanatics’ wild passion
for chaos, mayhem, violence and anarchy! Can you
kill a mother and love a girl at the same time
so much that you’d leave the kids you have just orphaned?
Do not call it naivety for the heavens’ sake!
Perhaps it is cowardice that prevented the boy
from saying he, not they, caused the accident that killed
his all too powerful uncle lord, the murdered Duke!
May be it was the way things were done in the past
but now I’m glad the way it ends with lots of doubts being cast!
