Listen Close

You can’t, my lad, believe a word they say—
But listen close for evidence of lies.
Distrust, once fostered, never goes away.
You can’t, my lad, believe a word they say.
Serious are the games they opt to play—
And deadly. Caution here is doubly wise.
You can’t, my lad, believe a word they say—
But listen close for evidence of lies.

–Tom Riley
