Come Clean

                        Wild news can come
                from any direction
        so oddly that it seems
we are confused to learn

                        Things are not different
                for me except for the
        direction of the news
which I learned first-hand

                        Liars have a most
                difficult job to perform
        with all the nuances
of their ill-spun web

                        No more spider for me
                and no more snakes sans feet
        i cannot coordinate eight feet
aside that i owe you that much

                        So i will be cool
                hang out and let it settle
        to your own mindset
we respect our own opinions

                        A long time coming
                relief and disbelief
        amazing what one does
to retain a good friendship.
