(A parade of words and phrases eligible for retirement.)
I heard it from your lying lips:
“All’s fair,” you said, “in love and war.”
I offer you some tasty sips
Of hemlock … Now you know the score.
The poison of your daily acts—
The poison of the things you say—
Has changed the rendering of “facts”
In dictionaries of today.
And “all” cannot be truly fair,
For “fair” demands an open heart,
And if you do not really care,
Relationships will fall apart.
