The Triumph Of Truth

Mightier than a sword, the pen triumphs
Shining the spotlight on reality
Summersaulting as it galumphs
In temerity, veracity and humility.

Mightier than a sword, the pen wins
Every duel no matter the odds
Stacked against reality and veracity queens
Despite vitriol hidden in sleaze pods.

Mightier than a sword, the pen crushes
Lies, spies, sties, flies
As the right word comes and brushes
Aside any pack and stack of lies.

Mightier than a sword, the pen annihilates
Attempts at sweeping dirt under a carpet
Tinted, tainted and humiliated as truth dilates
To brush aside any sycophant pet.
