In The Absence Of Truth - Poem by Mark Heathcote

In the absence of truth, we have many lies.
And errant mischief making smiles
They could be promising you eternal friendship.

But be on your guard, there could also be
Monsters, coming-up from the basement:
Chasing you into an old gravel, churchyard.

There are forces in this world, cause abasement
Debasement, displacement … resentment!
“You just don’t want to meet in any case”.
So brothers listen, trust in your gut your heart.

Don’t always believe your mind, eyes or ears,
It’s healthy to hold some things in doubt.
A slight reservation, let’s not forget,
What happen to the American Indian Nation?

In the absence of truth, we have many lies.
And errant mischief making smiles
If, you wants to pow wow with liars & thief’s
Expect tears to fall as big and round as leaves.
