Begging a response.
SILENCE OF THE WALL


Bang on the wall, or, the door,
Till your knuckles ache and sore.
There are some who won’t reply,
Howsoever hard you try.

Of no use, your cry and wail.
Rest assured, you won’t prevail
Against silence of the wall,
Which all entreaty does stall.

No more begging, ranting now.
I will, yet, pull on somehow
Without your benevolence.
I don’t need your sustenance.

Keep your wisdom, keep your gold,
O, you heartless creature old.
I will move on without you.
One day you may beg me too.
