When You’re Called to Speak in Court

When you’re called to speak in court, and know, but will not say,

 you’re as guilty as the one on trial, and you will pay.


Ignorance is bliss for they are sinless who don’t know. 

Life with others shows us soon enough the way to go.


Sharing someone’s secret to their harm and your increase,

makes of you a gossip, in whom no one should believe.


Knowledge carries tons of obligations, even guilt. 

God has made provision for remission, so rebuild!
