who don't want to tell the truth

or have something to hide

revert to the standard reply

No Comment


to hide their guilt

or their embarrassment

afraid of the press

some nosy reporter asking questions

or some antagonist ready to

rake them over the coals


they elude with the familiar

No Comment

cover their faces and their tracks

and run for the waiting limo

with cameras clicking

and the press in hot pursuit

like a bunch of hyenas

clamoring over a kill


the other option would be to just say

I don't know or even

I don't care

go bother someone else

but of course they won't do that

they don't have the guts


I, however

do have the guts

enough to write this poem

with this one disclaimer


the poem speaks for itself

other than that

Comment - plain spoken and true - love the hyena bit - suppose we'll have to wait for the official press release - wouldn't want anybody tripping on their own tongue.
