2018 Sonnet 48

No, don’t tell him! What will he say? We know
It was wrong, but we did it anyway.
Shhh! Stay quiet! Maybe it will just blow
Over. Let it wait for a better day.

Hush! It’s a secret! Just say nothing. Hush!
Not his business anyway. We don’t care.
Doesn’t matter now. Really, what’s the rush?
No one breathe a word! None would even dare.

Wake from the nightmare. Now, we live the dream.
That took guts and tough negotiation.
Civil War has ended. Now, we’re a team.
Nightmare over. Time for jubilation.

This is how the judgment works: People hide
That which proves their darkness is bonafide.
