Truth Must Be Told

The truth most be told,
for many see and deny their sight.

Behind closed doors another world exist,
Where true images of people rule the world.

Their cities are built not out of cement and bricks,
but of the evil and cheats which they insist.


The citizens are like foxes, deceitful and untrue,
Awaiting for their turn to slash and uproot.

They fight alongside each other,
with weapons which to our eyes seem illusive,
but to our minds they are real and true.


They move into battle with weapons of all kinds,
 but to the rulers, two are the strongest of their kind.

To all those who don’t live in their world,
it seems as so,
the rulers ride with a sword and shield,


their names best known to the citizens of the shadows
it goes by the name bribery and corruption,
where corruption is the sword and bribery the shield.

And from below,
they destroy our world with weapons of their evil kind.

Who are the citizens you may ask?
I do not know for the roam in the shadows with evil as their light
to my very knowledge I am aware of their aim.

Their aim is to drown with power and riches,
to acquire this they go towards many lengths,
stopping only when they have inhaled their last breath.

    Anyway, what matters is our thoughts, ideas and expression. And you’re efficient and smart here.😉
