The Truth

THE TRUTH Looking in through the window I knew I knew They lied about fire. What’s new, what’s new? The mother’s hated husband for a long ago But where would she go, where will she go? The father couldn’t answer a one question He looked like a frozen dummy. He got a message. They both knew the truth, but lied. They lied. The poor boy was scared. He cried, he cried. T’ interrogator asked them to tell the truth. He did not want them share the true news. The couple was united as never was quiet They tried to be protective for a poor child.

while reading the scenario, a cpl of thoughts came to my mind, knitting poem patterns. It doesn't happen often :) I wish it though :) Thank you SCAT. I read a few poems on soup, and was truly impressed. I'm lucky to meet all new friends here. Not to mention how much it's educational for me.Yours, Tatiana
