Lies are Rats

Lies are rats

Incessantly gnawing

Destroying and jawing

By grinding insatiable tooth

Black as night –

Disease-ridden giants

In skin of defiance

Are  vermin – unkempt and uncouth

Furtive beasts

Disappearing at will

Lurking secret and still

Invisible spectres of doom

Evil pests –

Reproducing in shame

Offspring spring off the name

Forcing Truth – their Plague – to the tomb

    I loved this particular part:

    “Offspring spring off the name
    Forcing Truth – their Plague – to the tomb”

    And I could recognize some people personified by these rats (is “personified” even an English word?hehe)

    Hugs
