These mystic words we write
Are perhaps not always our own
Some words are carried on Her wind
Some come to us through a hagstone
These poetic words we scribe
Can not, should not, be owned
Truth is a gift held high, Her blade
That mystery has finely honed
These words that you now covet
If taken from History's open muse
You cannot keep nor possess them
They are for those who hear to use
These words of Hers you lay claim to
Marked with your little copyright
Will come back to surely haunt you
When She turns towards you to fight
For Her words are truly Sacred
And She will rip away your breath
If you keep taking her words from Her
You will pay with your slow Death
For here we are but small men
So possessive in our little ways
You can only steal from the Goddess
Until she marks your end of days...
Author's Notes: One of those little circle C things does not automatically make it yours. Intellectual property is earned, not just marked. Have you done your research? Can you be certain what you are claiming as yours has not been written before? Are you sure you are not plagerizing? If you are going to copyright it you better be sure... 3x3
Be it understood If I write it and someone wants to use it, borrow it, post, steal or publish it they have to ask my permission first, which they will probably get (thank you very much for asking just give due credit to me, the Dieties, the Muse, the Goddess and my mystic horse of course) .
Be it also understand if our poetry really sucks, there is especially no need to, like, copyright it. Yaknow.
Here we are among friends. (Unless I catch you stealing some of MY lines. Then there will be hell to pay boys oh boys : ) Be it understood that I don't like having to say this, but all my work is my intellectual property de facto. What's the world of words coming to?
