Quill Unsheathed

How quickly some learn

To rewrite reality

With carefully chosen words

Replacing illusion for truth

They have chosen the quill

Wielding ink carefully

Constructing the vision of the world

As they wish it

Avoiding accountability

For they have written only of their innocence

Denying their misdeeds with accusations

Clever, clever

A brief smirk gives them away

Though they now feel invisible again

True nature hidden

They sigh in relief

The one who sees

Allows this for now

Having long battled the quill

Implacable and unresisting

Standing strong in the truth

Knowing the accounting comes for us all

One day
