Preciously Kept Principles

Truth is seldom,
Welcomed as a friend.
The moment it appears on the scene,
People are heard demeaning it.
And yet,
Truth never seems to give up what it does.
Even if dragged through the mud.
To get right back in the faces of those,
Who can not make enough excuses...
With the hope allegations used,
Will support their implications...
That their deceptions,
Highly praised to crave and manipulate...
Had been intended by introducing truth,
To offend their valued and preciously kept...
Principles.
