VINDICTIVE

RESURRECTED SINS

IGNORANTIC ALIBI

Light is poison To the eyes of an owl Its fear of light is like Human’s fear of darkness II You light your path in the dark Knowing not you’re woe to an owl And its generation And you attribute your snooping to its help? III Flat lies are too shameful When they walk in […]
