Truth

if we could just
leave truth be
leave it
where it can do
no harm
leave it
in the minds
of all the fools
who keep finding it

but no…

they keep dressing
it up
wrapping it in religion
science
politics
mathematics
medicine
for this truth
will keep you
healthy
happy
&
hateful
this truth
will lead you to god
to the promised
land of milk
&
honey

truth…

if we could just
leave it be
somewhere secret
somewhere out
of the way

perhaps…

just over there…
