The Lie



to break faith could be a covered act

in silence, it could be a song under attack 

as the pens’ power could be an arm in the closet

to be deaf from truth, the fact can’t be a secret


words with thorns could grow its own feathered wings

and snoop by chance at a crowd of hungry ears 

while some tongues would speak freely without fears

and soon the silence would break and eventually stings


by some time it reached the heart of the one concerned

the  hurting tale has pinned, the strike was outnumbered

the spreading blaze has razed and never again a return

it has damaged relations and all attached will burn…
