Shallow water spills
Filling cracks lacking depth
As stagnant pools form and grow..
Long forgotten a tomb decays
Leaving wisdom etched in stone to crumble,
Leavening fallow ground,
And truth to flake in primal dust..
Hollow mouths then spew blackened pitch
For ears in need of honesty..
Corruption smiles with sharpened teeth
And false pride built pane by pane, shines..
Towering upon an edifice of glass
It stands firm on shifting sand
Certain not one remains that could ever throw
A wise and trusted stone…
