Honesty
by Henry Burt Stevens
07/13/2004

"Slammed" hard
from many sides

"Collared" by
those in trust

"Unpatriotic" the
new definition

now a triangle
upside down on apex

not tipping over
every side proped up

by those
who's interest

needs money
power, dominance

over those weaker
who submissivly

learn new meanings
for old words.
