Torn, tattered, tantalized;
Illuminating darkness fills your eyes.
Emotion fueled from burning lies,
The truth covered with a convincing disguise

Corrupt, clashed, criticized;
Is the truth worth this sacrifice?
Pain caused from untruthful ties,
Could this be how our values abide?

Monkish, modesty, moralized;
Fidelity to soon be realized.
Fiery deceit will be extinguished in time,
This accusation's verity will be tried.
