Safe And Sound
by Secret

Lies are secrets.
Secrets are not all lies.

Lies are bad,
Secrets are not all bad.

Secrets are made and kept.
Make as many as you may;
Keep as much as you can.

So what if its bad?
Why put a lie on it?
Why put a secret on a secret?
Why make it worse?

A secret on a secret
Is not an addition.
Its an exponent.

Indeed, keep as much as you can.
But how much can you keep?

So what if its bad?
Keep it sound.

Safe and sound.
