Evil thrives within the hush of silence, it has a keen ear for the slightest sound. And it will react with violence and threats to quiet any voice of protest down. Truth fuels a cacophony of noise, where whispers oft morph into crescendos. But fears are fed on a diet of lies, suppressing queries and innuendos. By remaining mum, we betray ourselves, melding with shadows of conformity. And by sowing seeds of complicity, we reap society's deformity. Tied tongues are intimated not to shout, for a fly does not enter a closed mouth. (Sonnet) 08,13,2019 Romani Proverb Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Julia Ward
