Rhyme & Reason

When darkness looms everywhere

When tyranny does cause a scare

When life and honour are at stake

When worries do keep us awake

When truth becomes an alien thing

When every rogue becomes a king

Pledge to honesty we must never break

Let us be forthright whatever the take

Fraud must be put to shame

Falsehood must hide in vain

Those who lie, cheat and deceive

Condemnation they must receive

Honoured must the honest be

Lauded 'n praised for this quality

Honesty does dazzle like the sun

War against deceit must be won
