Already Knew


If in the instant you reveal that secret you 
kept locked away you really conceal what  
motivates your clandestine behaviour, ok, 
it's out of our hands; and you demur, who 
gives a toss, anyone saying it's at odds is 
stepping outside their interest portfolio of 
being seen but not heard - so why me as 
the sacrificial lamb of your dubious rite 

Easier to ply the masses lies than to feed 
‘em undigestible truth he replies - you’re 
an anachronism who flies in th’ face of a 
belief you can hide from it, your secret’s 
yesterday’s news so why suggest who’s 
to blame when we already knew
