They

when they try to empty you,
if you're full of honesty
they can't take all you own,

when they strip you to the bone,
or style you with mendacity,
dress yourself with humility,

when they try to outrun you
take the long road alone,
and always know with certainty

you'll find the way home -

for even if they try to tie
their lies around you
when there is nothing left to say,

or they want to paint others
with their own colours,
trust in truth that won't play,

know time isn't a false witness
that will lie to us like they,
or measure out its justice

in a single day.
