Secret by Dee

Not with a bang

Nor with a whimper

But with a whisper

Ends the world 

Subtle susurrations

Of pursed lips

Shielded by

Hands and Infinite Politeness

You didn’t hear it from me

But

Did you know that She

Did you know that He

Did you know that They

Oh

No

Well

For shame

And a mere murmur

Breaks down years

Built on brick and mortar

And homes torn down

Piece by piece

And lives

Smashed apart

By nothing more

Than a hissed syllable

Or two
