Much deceit and bluff 


with misleading lips.  

Your rumors so vague

cryptic words inside unfathomable sham

your translation shrouding truth like a plague.

Whispers that twist and stain 

without being spoken aloud  

never becoming anything other than lies faintly sung

in low tones 

weakly plied against those you don’t love.
