Wiki Leaks - Poem by Ikechukwu Ogbuike

Honesty...
It does not taste like Hennessey.
More like a well kept secret
That continues to ride high in integrity until it gets a kick in the teeth from wiki leaks.
Have you truly ever seen an honest person?
If not the children, for it's only to such as them that belongs the kingdom.
When you do, tell them good bye
Before you discover their lie...
I wish honesty is as certain as the sun set
Instead of this continuing puzzle of who cheated first
People have learnt not to blink an eye
Even when it's obvious they are telling a lie
Convinced though they are of their reason
Which turns out to be just another filth which gathers moss with every passing season
A crooked pastor
Wrapped up on stage like a rooster
Preaching heaven
To people that wants have robbed of their reason
Does not stop
To ask if the congregation is on the same course
They live their illusory reality
Very much detached from their very society.
But then truth has always been relative
Taking from what is not to add color to what is
Scarcely told for what it is
But most times for economic benefits
Maybe this is why it is beneficial now for humanity to have wiki leaks
If it's only as a reminder that the straight line we think we see is not really what it seems.
