The poem is below.


Destructive false rumours

He received a death threat,
A threat for doing what's right,
The death threat coming from him
Stepping in and stopping a fight.

Then he had a knock at the door,
And the false allegations were read,
The suits didn't care about the truth
They only cared for the lies that were said.

He was framed for a thing he didn't do,
Where false rumours all stuck like mud,
These false rumours ripped out his honest heart,
And drained his beautiful blood.

And the people responsible for his hurt
Never had to answer the question of Why,
Why they tried to destroy this man,
By spreading an awful lie.

oh how we want everyone to have a voice but we lack the search for the truth in the words, your poem tells a story that is too possible, falsity rains and buckets fill. Nice to read you tonight :)

Thanks Casarah. Yep, false accusers aren't held to account.
