The Truth
— a poem by Marc Carver

I have to say i have upset quite a few people today
I don't mean to do it
but i have never been much for the rules.
... It must have started at about six this morning
and then people caught up with me
that i had upset yesterday.
I used to take a lot of joy from it
but now i don't.
all i hurt them with is the truth
that is the killer
most people hate that
all you have to do to get rid of people
is tell them the truth
it burns them
