Discernment by Christopher F. Brown



I see truth in your mouth
Tell me
Liar

Does it burn your tongue
Is it spicy like a thousand peppers
Does it make you want to vomit

Tell me
Liar
Why is it that
I see truth on your tongue

Was it a secret you overheard
Did you torture the soul of someone honest
Did you kill someone virginally innocent
Whom did you steal it from
Why do you desecrate it
Placing it in your foul mouth

Liar
Tell me
Why is there truth on your tongue

How is it that you can even pronounce its syllables
The hollow that houses the rotted
Cursed cadaver of flesh
You call a tongue
Has never shaped its self to produce the subtle tones
Nor has your mind the ability to comprehend the nuances
only known to truth.

In the mouth of a
Liar
I see
Truth

My eye and ears
Must have
turned against me
My mind
Must have
gone

If you
The Liar
Are capable of truth
What are they
The Believers
To believe
