Secrets and Lies by Amanda Knowles

We know you are out there

Hidden in the ranks

Bestowed with fancy titles

That camouflage disgrace


You are fugitives from candour

Concealed by collusion

Indifferent to the stain

Of sickening misconduct


But what about the victims

Laced in the stench of your guilt

Serving as an indelible reminder

Of crimes evaded


Denied their right to justice

By high ranking influence

Determined to erase the scar of      

Unforgivable abuse


But know this…

Behind every survivor is a story

To be remembered lest we forget

It was our duty to protect
