    In Plain View

    Due to political circumstances beyond my control
    I am forced to live underground in plain view.
    I am neither especially heroic nor overly brave
    But I’m compelled to leave a truer historical record
    Than that provided by the office of homeland securities.
    This particular style of life wrecks havoc on one’s romantic love
    While steeling the hearts committed to the cause we cannot lose.
    It is without question that I must practice unconditional truth to my highest ability
    And become as outstandingly wonderful as it is humanly possible for me to be.

    In plain view is right, no behind the wall stabbing...it's in view, needless to say...that covers all the above statements.
    Awesome piece of work poet, I feel and witness the view as well.
