           THE REASON FOR TREASON
I know the reason you did what you did
The responsibility lies solely on what your hush hid
A secret you whisper in the darkness while alone
A confidence which by me is now negatively known

I used to treat you with the respect I thought you deserved
Until your disloyalty was so subversively served
I related funny little anecdotes to someone I deemed a friend
And now I regret that you ever had an earnest ear to lend

That hush was a furtive fact your laughter couldn’t hide
A covert alert that your grins decidedly defied
I felt in my heart that your smiles were sincere
And now I live with a frown and facts too difficult to bear

It is a detrimental detail my mind can’t avoid
And now I am left more than a little annoyed
Bothered by a belligerent reality now revealed
While I wait to see what further havoc your betrayal might yield

Believe this one statement if you believe nothing else I ever say
I remember a blue sky before your duplicity turned it gray
Now to me it seems the sky will never again become blue
And thanks for that worrisome weather report which is due solely to you

You didn’t have to say a word to anyone about me
All you had to do was allow what you once believed just be
But because of your disclosure it caused irreparable harm
So I now believe your sequestered secret is that camaraderie is not part of your charm!
