Unnecessary Caution

Updated on May 4, 2014

Why tip-toe

around the truth

when it can be told

at any podium

bare-faced and unashamed:

All giant Gullivers in your rich verdant towns of Liliput

always make leaf buds hang,

beds creak under bones and skulls

and ships sink quickly in quicksand.

      Truth must be told whatever the price is.Beating about the bush and not calling a spade spade leads only to destruction.Thanks for dropping by.

      I love the analogies here, James. Truth, if masked, leads to destruction as you've put so well. Shared.
