Perjury

Perjury is a funny word because it implies

that we lie to purge ourselves of something.

Maybe I only think that because of how it sounds,

but it’s funny that such a betrayal of the truth can often feel natural,

like the passion between two forbidden lovers, who’ve forgotten

consequence.
