truth walks free

among the working-class
ordinary folk

it resides in the hearts of drunks
who frequent barely lit bars
and buzz what’s new

truth walks free

you may find it in the yellowing diaries of dead actors
or between the lines of a principled, honourable poem
it may nest in the zero-one zero-one mind of a soldier
or blast out of the speakers of reputable daughters

it may anger the famed, leading few
and guarded rich men may set a high-minded warrior
to watch
and ultimately

but they will fail

truth walks free
