It has been months or perhaps years since I tickled your mind

Guess who back and expressing himself in the form of a rhyme

Well I saw God, I met Satan, I even wallowed in hell

In resentfulness I served my miserable time in my own private jail


I have no friends to speak of and no enemies to hate

The only thing left is what the man among men call faith

Clear your mind, open your hearts as I force you to think

Search as one, we seek commonalities and seek out that missing link


One case in point is the title of this work you love

Why call it 12, why does it suit like a hand and glove

Oh yes years have passed but I have not loss my wits

But to understand this title it will cause you to have fits


Four times four is sixteen and that’s all that saying my friend

Until the next time we meet let’s just call this the end

An interesting poem
This is an interesting poem, the first stanza seems to speak of a time of suffering. The second stanza focuses on relationships and has a hopeful tone in spite of the persona's solitude in that in spite of his/her solitude, he has his faith to depend on. Does the title have anything to do with a 'foundation'? Just wondering. You seem to make an interesting play on numbers at the very end. All in all, an enjoyable poem, thanks for sharing.
