Let the secret be told - – A poem written by Elisa English on 5/05/10 (Just for fun)
When is a secret not a secret?
If I tell you a secret,
would it still be a secret?
I wonder. When is a secret not a secret?
You told me a secret,
and asked me to keep it a secret.
Are you asking too much of me?
Are you thinking too highly of me?
How can I keep it a secret
when no longer it is a secret?
Will a secret remain a secret
when told to another being?
How can you get so aggravated
for my mimicking of what you did?
I will ask him to keep it a secret
exactly like you demonstrate
Please don't be mad at me
for the action I follow thee.
