As Truth Met With A Lance


Ignorance crowned Falsehood's frown
As Truth met with a Lance
For, the Judge's gown went tumbling down
Sealing Falsehood as Truth's holy meltdown

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Take everything with a pinch of salt. Rumours are quite easily spread by bitter tongues but the blame is upon the ignorant mass who takes it as but the one and holy truth. Ignorance crowns all that false and helps slash truth to the ground. Questioning a fact, whether right or wrong, before placing a blame can counter ignorance's blindness. Why? Because it's easy to talk of another or spread a rumour but everything that goes around comes around and he who talks will be talked of one day.

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
