FORGIVEN

Why should I
by and by
Give in to a little 'White Lie?'

400 years and counting
Yet deception, destruction and death surmounting 

From whips and chains
to covert stress and strain

Make believe or pretend
this macabre never seems to end

Like water flowing  from a chute
precious black blood in city streets but no one
gives a hoot

Why should I 
by and by
Give in to a little 'White Lie?'

Why?  I say!  Should I?
by and by
Give in to a little 'White lie?'
