How your smile can illuminate

How brightly you shine 

How easily purchased has been,

The lie behind the eyes,

Of the statue,

Standing tall,

Rooted firmly in hypocrisy.


How readily accepted,

To the bosoms of those, 

Unknowingly drawn,

To the facade.

Believing you,

To be of the same feather

As to a duck hunter's decoy,

They flock to your side. 


An explosion cuts through the fog

As the last emotion caresses the ground

Silhouetted against my shame

The form of self proclaimed perfection can be seen

Now firmly planted in victory.
