Best Kept Secret


Sshhhh! (Photo credit: rofi)

You have the best kept secret of all
They’d never know or guess
How far you’d stoop or fall

You hide your crimes in plain sight
The whiplash of comedy
Is a beacon far too harsh and bright

For years your truer self
Hid complete behind arched brow
All your secrets on your shelf

You have the best kept secret, I sense
You are the king of all perversity
The first, true master of pretence

    Wow. A bright spotlight on the hidden perversities veiled with woolly humour. The jokers who fool others with their shallow sociability.
