True enemy is not the one you know;
It’s a friend or a family who you know.
He bears huge grudge but gently smiles.
Disloyal plan, he has mounted covertly.
Close to me, he is;cries when I agonize;
Yet, animosity fully dwells in his heart.
Beware of scorpions wearing snail’s shell.
Ordinary eyes never see regular enemy;
Their stings injure the body and the heart.
Recall Herod and the Magi ‘bout Jesus,
Understand Delilahand Samson of the Bible,
Conclude with the hug of Judas to Christ;
Sit and digest the gist of people’s words.
