Busybodies are found everywhere. At work, their snooping is usually discovered early on and they can be redirected into useful tasks. In neighborhoods they can fuel petty complaints and start feuds. On an international scale, they can bring down nations.
Spies are professional busybodies. Sneaking around, prying into all media looking for anything out of place.
Handled with skill, their presence can defer or even delay a war and they can last for years.
Years holding a secret that could destroy them and all that they love if it were told.
As these years pass, I want you to peer into the abyss. Sometimes the abyss peers back at you.
Beware unknown unknowns, because they are
lurking unseen unheard unfelt yet there
Sunlight illuminating the shadows
repeatedly sustained will help them go
what evil lurks in the hearts of men?
the shadow knows, tells all, again, again.
Fear not, be not yellow, nor fowl, chicken
awareness now fends off chance of victim
as a window into darkest corners
reveals lurking dangers, evil doers.
