Skeleton Keys

Secrets in the dead of night 
Kept safely tucked away 
Encased in the very walls 
Lest they be thrown astray. 
Everybody knows there are 
Truths hidden in the lies. 
Obfuscation is the game, 
Not for the lack of tries. 
 
Keep your curiosity 
Esoteric, and accept 
You’re safe in the knowledge that 
Some secrets should be kept.
