The Balance, Dance And Lance Of Innocence - Poem by John Sensele

Pillored and adulterated
Innocence flies away
Fearing to be underrated
In slimy circumstances for too long kept at bay

Until to her dismay
Innocence uncovers the mask
Behind facades that waylay
Every question innocence dares to ask

To establish the veracity
Banished so unfairly to confines
Where the truth plasticity
In the sand draws red lines

Challenging meninges
Whose yardsticks fall by the wayside
The day disturbances in sapience syringes
Opt to defend discredited personal pride.
