Spades

By Hailea Fiona

Dress it up and call it something else,
it's only a well-dressed lie.
I'll call it like I see it when you won't.

I'll remind you...it's not new.

You've been friends with it for so long,
and it's been far too long
to try and deny it now.

So what if other people can't see it;
if they don't know it's there...

You can see it, you know it's there;
and the fact that others don't...
Well that only makes you more aware.

Call it what you will, but a spade's a spade...
And everyone knows that's the truth.
