Whitewash

Prowling in veneer
Camouflage of empathy
Voice inflections

Words of deceit

Laced with honesty
Dripping with sincerity
Twined with humor

Cloaking devices

Prey uncloaked
Vulnerable
Seeking

Desiring to trust

Words
Minds
Hearts

Dance

Lies spew
Without remorse
Just cause

Erasure

Soul violation
Hypocrisy masked
No roll call

Another non-person
