I have long wondered when will lies be exposed as lies and truth be condoned as truth instead of lying in the silt of a river to be only stirred by the storm of lies.

Raging Rivers

When the bridges that span
our obliqueness to truth
are joined to the shored sands
of the factual realm
the kiss of hyena
shall no longer foul
the lion cub's feast of day
nor shall the crow and hawk
vie substinence of theft.

Where one bridge is failing
another shall build to
a better sleigh of hand
for truth yeilds bitterness
to sleuths that trade in lies'
mixtured fodder of chaff
that smothers truth's fresh breath
echoed in its brewed pot
of uncertain's failed quest.

Truth wears it better dress
to funerals of lies
and sings its hymns of joy
to questors' search of facts
sifting through call of winds
blowing their pollinates
as sentinels on watch
lest qualms of lies sedate
the blessedness of truth.
