For Charlie

You don't swallow it;
The usual clever claptrap,
I offer up to fools.

When in conversation;
Inconsequential ramblings,
Are as rubbish in your eyes.

However carefully presented;
My feigned charms,
Could never flatter you.

The frauds that I commit;
Are threatened by exposure,
With your ever piercing scrutiny.

It alarms me;
How my defenses,
Daily are defeated.

Where all others fail;
Your frank reality,
Has brought me to my knees.

You've prevented me;
From further acts of treason,
That would have made me hollow.

I admire you so;
For putting an end,
To the superficial me.
