|Totally over the top!! Very unique and so cleverly done, all the while telling a terrible truth with such clear grace.
Jude, you rock!

|You nailed this write to perfection, Jude ... Excellent!|
|Reviewed by Nordette Adams
|Wooo! You've run a chill up the old spine here. Warning duly noted, Jude, about so many things in this life. But the meek shall inherit the earth, dove.|
|Reviewed by Katy Walsvik
|oooo... that last cuplet hit the bullseye, Robert! Your commentary is of irrefutable truths, steeped with your usual unique word-magic. Oh, to think in metaphors and avoid the cold, slippery surface of facts.
I think this is bold and beautiful! You do that so well. katy xox.

Exceptionally clever verse and meaning ... outstanding write!!
|Reviewed by Muhammad Al Mahdi
|Excellent. Very powerful words and a clear statement. I very much like it.|
|Reviewed by Gwen Dickerson
|A worthy write, my friend! The lessons of history, the behavior of man, and the greedy lust for money and power, will haunt us for as long as mankind survives. I agree with you: Trust your own instincts. And I add:
Take responsibility for your own actions. Let us hope that by consciously exhibiting the best within us, that evil and mis-trust will be present much less in the future than it has been in the past.

|How true this is. And how apropos. I am sitting at my desk working on a paper on organizational power and politics. This poem would fit right in as it reads like a day at the office. ~ Sara|

What do I think of Conspirators. Your writing is awesome, and your words are full of truth and wisdom. It was a joy to stop by and read some of your work again.
|Reviewed by Tracey L. O' Very (Reader)
|Wise wise words to remember and love you way you write this. Wonderful. powerful so intent yet 'simple' language easily understood.
|Reviewed by Huda Orfali
|Very powerful write, Ace and unfortunately very true. :(
But we have to give trust, otherwise we won't survive with sanity
Well Done my friend
Love and peace
|Reviewed by Dave Harm
|Great write, with a lot of truth. But, I don't want to live in fear either, as Jesus said, "Do what you have to do..."|
|Reviewed by Pier Tyler
|I think this is an excellent write. It gets to the soul's core. If a person has a caring heart and a conscience, they will "check" themselves to make sure they treat others right. Besides ugliness and seekers who want to devour usually "fizz out." Meaning they expose them ownselves soon or later.|
|Reviewed by Carole Mathys
|Very well said Jude, especially "trust your own instincts"...be true to yourself, always. Excellent write!

|It sounds like my industry...Such is war with a smile...After awhile you just learn to shake it off...the negativity always comes around to bite them in the ass...|

|Very well put, Robert.|

|Disguised as an angel of light. This is magnificant, Jude.|
|Reviewed by Kate Clifford
|The thing that drives me the most wild about such situations is how easy it is for such, "Conspirators," to get the attention of so many to do the dirty work for them. I use to be angry at them. Now I am angry at the people that listen to them and help them do negative things to others, all in the name of what? I trust few for this reason.
Your words are affective in their message. Great write. Perhaps this time the sheep will listen before they do something stupid?
|Reviewed by Retta (Reindeer) Mckenzie
|Excellent wise advice Robert, this was excellent.
|Reviewed by Franz Kessler
|Your poem wonderfully evoques the realm of jealousy and betrayal. Like the shadow follows the light, miserable attitudes accompany the great.
Very interesting write, and subject. Franz
|Reviewed by Judy Lloyd (Reader)
|Yes this is sage advice indeed Robert and I feel it strongly.|
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|Yes Robert this is a poem filled with wise advice that unfortunately we don't come to fully believe until we are either burned one too many times or we have the wisdom of age. Your poem sums it up quite well.
|Reviewed by Sherry Heim
|There are always those who would like to trick us or tear us down, create fears or insecurities in us and accent our vulnerabilities so that we will feel less powerful over our own destiny than we actually are. The trick is to tell ourself everyday that we have the power to control our own destiny and the strength to love and honor ourselves as we are. Let others do as they wish, but nobody can make us feel bad about ourself unless we let them. Perfectly penned as always, Robert.
|Reviewed by Lisa Hilbers
|Robert, Being and staying confident in who we are, is their worst nightmare. They draw strength from the weaknesses of their prey. If they can't penetrate the wall, they obviously can't hurt them.
Strong message or maybe warning.
But ofcourse it's perfectly penned as always!
|Reviewed by Tinka Boukes
|Deep and true message/poem like there is a mystery that haunts us!!
Thank You Robert!!

|Oh dear... why do I start to wobble when we get onto these topics? Must be my paranoid dysfunction kickin in as usual, and Andy has taken the words right out of my mouth - Scotland is not to be left out of the general melting pot that us glorious and incestuous Europeans are glued together by - especially us Brits. But Sir Winston, below, is also right in his assessment that the crowd, by enlarge, are easily led by the nose, and blinded by false trust, disinterest or adulation for the main part. Negative energy seems to be our poison of choice these days. Heigh ho... we stagger from the Rose to the Woes and from the Hothouse to the Frying Pan and the Fire... but then, who wants a quiet life after all?! An heroic soliloquy and wisdom piece, here, Jude. Lead on, Macduff... :)) Kate xx|

|Oftentimes they fall into their own trap.
This has the impact of MacBeth.
This country's history is riddled with conspirators. Just look at the not so Royal family.
Too many go with the crowd, more often than not, the crowd is wrong..

|Evil is alien to a lot and kindred to many. Powerful write, Jude. A bit scary for me. I want nothing to do with evil. Love and peace to you. Regis|

|excellent write, Jude...I can't ssay it any better than Linda already has..|
|Reviewed by L. Figgins
|This poem cuts to the heart of the matter. You have described with chilling accuracy what I have long known to be a most foul form of evil-yes EVIL. That is gossip, false witness, plotting or whatever label may be attached to same. It is spread by people who are, for the most part, miserable and must be pitied...|
