Accept, Except

Bridges imperfect
Rivers overwhelm
Bastions overrun
Treachery's reward

Bow to time
But not too low
Wash away
Surrender peace

Arbitrary order
Letters exact
Typeset unyielding
Biblical stack

Confusion's mansion
Wrapped porch chair
Might yet burn up
Cold fire stare

Lead on, intuitive word
Don't question the next
Never rethink the last
Rivers examined freeze

Resonance meaning
Dissonant rhyme
Who is it for - 
Should I look back?
