Quadruple Jumps And Pirouettes

Listen!
There have been those taught,
And conditioned.
As if accustomed to do it.
To defend their innocence.
With such incredible believability,
That the use of a lie detector hooking them in place...
Would never detect a deception has been erased.

And if hell should freeze over...
You would never suspect them at all,
To be doing quadruple jumps and pirouettes.
Even if they were filmed in the process as seen.
Because their eyes will swell up with tears,
Denying that which obviously appears.
To blurt out accusations loudly heard,
Of being offended by unwarranted suspicions.
