BACKGROUND NOISE

It was background noise;
nothing Texas drawl and swagger couldn’t
drown out.

But by week’s end
no two-stepping or spinning could
silence it.

The chatter crescendoed,
ringing out across this land of
free and brave.

The sound was a lie
being spread in finger-pointing and
cover-up.

Once told in whispers
to intimidate and frame,
it now blares.

It reveals more lies,
each one tempting truth’s limits
for small gain.

Hear the sound's echo:
No one is above the law, not even the
President’s men.

We may never know
how much the President knew or
was involved.

But the veil is torn;
the self-righteous facade is gone;
truth has a chance.
