Lawrence S. Pertillar
Truth To Delude
As a narrative to not expose with a doing kept,
To keep undisclosed to conceal facts hidden...
To deliberately replace them to elaborate,
On that which isn't...
For purposes to create scenerios,
That become easier to explain...
With a more familiar flavored taste,
Given to others to satisfy as they begin to turn away...
Gets increasingly more difficult to do and choose...
When mysteries have come to feast on delusions.
And truth to delude,
Decreases each time the same excuses are used...
Just to re-introduce updated substitutes to confuse reality.
A reality, although not welcomed...
Can and will sting stun tongues expecting to be sweetened.
And not believing with their ears,
To hear a doing to them which has been done.
