Best Kept Secret

Sshhhh!

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

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    Wow. A bright spotlight on the hidden perversities veiled with woolly humour. The jokers who fool others with their shallow sociability.
    Dropped by briefly with a little gift – thank you for following my blog for so long!
