Sword of Truth

The Sword of truth its way through hacks

Not time nor tide can block its rise

Pretense that builds castles of wax

The Sword of truth its way through hacks

Sugar that coats and hides the facts

Cloaks that deceive and shields of lies

The Sword of truth its way through hacks

Not time nor tide can block its rise

This post is my first attempt at an ancient French poetry form called triolet (ABaAabAB). You can learn more about triolets here. This post has been posted for the picture prompt at Magpie Tales Edition 58
