never tell a single truth

never tell a single truth
they’ll die without a friend

never swallow lullabies
or counterfeit pretend

never counsel orphaned lies
that they should get a father

and do not stump for votes out here
there’s no real need
to bother

      1. check in with me from time to time. You are welcome to use any image of mine you might like. But if you ask me to select a “beautiful” one-well, i have yet to paint it. Still i could try to paint what i saw on this morning’s walk. It was beautiful; if only i could paint it!
