....Can be Deceiving!

Smart of good bearing
Elegantly attired
Well defined pure white

Seemingly alert
Officer and gentleman
You state your being!

Forthright leadership
Cultured and boldly refined
You state your due rights!

Of no real wants
Disciplined and distinguished
You state it real good!

You are deathly white!
I clamor for more insight!
Are we playing games?

Save your earnings
Hark, deathly apparition!
I just don’t buy it!
