Lay It on the Line


Take honesty; it matters.                     
Skirting an issue can shape
the truth until it shatters.
Guile provides means of escape.
Candor is what I desire
over cunning craftiness.
How many people will hire
one who’s extremely careless?
Truth in shreds, as I debate
deciding what to do next.
This is one November date
that leaves me more than perplexed.
