Friendship

Close advisers, and friends,
are always
the first to die in the revolution
for they are the ones who
know the most
kept the secrets
hid the lies
went along with the plans

Once broken, the bond
lays like a hot, searing scar
marring the landscape
where once love and
admiration stood

Rather than look into
the dead eyes or to risk
the truth, it is better,
easier, nay, necessary

To injure, harm,
lie some more, ignore,
banish,
and whenever possible,

kill
