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.
