Banishment

Banishment

 

 

You told the truth — and that’s a hurtful thing.
You’re banished from the Seminar of Liars.
Lies soothe — but careless verities all sting.
You told the truth — and that’s a hurtful thing.
We have declared dishonesty is king.
If you are selling truth, you’ll find no buyers.
You told the truth — and that’s a hurtful thing:
you’re banished from the Seminar of Liars!

 

 

–Tom Riley
