Penelope didn’t realize

She was so deep in her lie

There was no way to deny

She didn’t mean to say it aloud,

Not here

Not in front of this crowd

Making them witnesses to her fear

But now that it was out,

Strutting on legs of its own

A blazing beacon

Her shame shown

There was no taking it back

No one would cut her any slack

There was nothing she could do

Just nod her head and walk through
