Truth Moon – By June Perkins

If we can harvest the moon
should we

Or should we let it continue to be
the harvest moon

Not the harvested moon

Mr Twain says that lies can travel
half way around the world

whilst truth puts on it shoes

hoaxes of celebrity
deaths that never happened
come to mind

people fight manipulation from
papers and towering billboards

they want the truth before they make decisions
not gift wrapped lies
for dreams

the moon looks down on all
she thinks
harvesting the truth
could call for Hermes
and his winged shoes to bring
us back stories
we can believe
