"Truth" (by Joe DiMino)

Truth is everything-
To one's self;
To loved ones…
And to God and Nation,
Especially when empowered to represent.

One does not reach Truth
By circuitous path of lies-
Nor do doors opened
Lead to true prosperity
If they are swinging,
With returns
Of obvious theft.

In God and Heaven we trust,
But politicians should be held
Far closer to earth-

Not for reason of empty words
Which we know are
Often scripted,

But for drug of
Cradle-to-grave security rhetoric,

Leading to spiritless society
Of blissfully brain-dead.
