They Have To Runaway - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

They Have To Runaway
Written by: Wilfred Mellers, Monday, January 25,2016

The truth is the truth you cannot dispute
Time you realize with caution execute
You can run, but from yourself cannot hide
You cannot hide from what you are holding onto inside

They have to run away
They just can't stand it
They have to run away
So they lie and everything they deny
They have to run away
They just can't face it
They have to run away
Without a trace, they vanished so far away

All exposed like the nose on your face
Deceits you quarry every time your mouth hesitate
Fallacies, not a word can you believe
Your lips betray the tangled web that you weave

They have to run away
They just can't stand it
They have to run away
So they lie and everything they deny
They have to run away
They just can't face it
They have to run away
Without a trace, they vanished so far away

What? Did I just fall off a turnip truck?
Stuck in reverse and your words are corrupt
You must be confused and yourself you amuse
Pathetic lines in time the victims of war crimes

Venom from the serpent cuts like knives
Poisons from the folly echo in the starry skies
Sheep to the slaughter and the body filled with hives
Tales spinning fancy as dusk turns back to sunrise
