You wield the sword of truthfulness

and with it pierce my heart

Demonstrating that my judgment

was in error from the start.

 

Maybe honesty is not  the best policy after all?

 

But what you fail to see

that I have known all along

Is when one’s actions match their words

the truth is never wrong.

 

It’s when there is duplicity

that some concealment may be needed

when the rules of common decency

and community are not heeded.

 

 

Though you serve me boldly now

A plate of open-faced bitter I cannot digest…

I’ll walk away, with my head held high

leaving you to drown in your mire and suggest

 

Perhaps… honesty is  the best policy after all!
