The Emperor’s Mask

It’s easy to hide behind words,

with the truth left abandoned and stark

 

It’s easy to hide behind words,

with your feelings sharp pointed and dark

 

It’s easy to hide behind words,

when the emperor buys you new clothes

 

It’s easy to hide behind words

—whose deception dishonors you so

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2020)
