TRUTH

Maim the drums of Truth
And sear callous palms
To beat the congas of Lie:
Yet, Truth will make its sound

Tear; mutilate the psalms of Truth
And renew the muse of the bards
To publish the proverbs of Lie:
Still, Truth will be read

Exile; ostracize Truth to distant lands
And prepare the thorn-throne 
To crown Lie the king:
Soon, Truth will be enthroned

Mask; conceal the visage of Truth
And array the countenance 
To unveil the beauty of Lie:
With the veil, Truth will prevail

Imprison; confine that man called Truth
And give freedom-feathers 
To that man called Lie to fly:
Surely, Truth will still soar

Mute; silence the chorus of Truth
And mobilise angelic voices
To sing the anthem of Lie aloud:
The music of Truth will endure

Lie may endure for a millenium
Truth resurrects in milliseconds

    Angel, first I want to thank you for visiting my poem - always enjoyable with a few words from you. - Your poem tells a lot about the truth - maybe not always so easy to relate to the truth - but the truth always wins over the lie! - Wish you all the best! - Come back soon. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
