Everyone is Nobody

Trust nobody with your secrets
everyone is  nobody

Nobody has head for secrets
everybody’s head is porous
secrets each them as ringworm
all confidentiality drain away
as water down the valley
with little or nothing held back

Everybody is nobody
if you want trouble to hatch
if you want envy to rise up
plant your secrets in  heads

But look at your mouth as well
if it is a pipe that pours water
in porous heads in community
then you are the first nobody
broken pipe that pours liquid
into broken heads in society

If everybody is nobody
then who is somebody?
