No secret sharer to unlock my mind,
For confidences are too often broken,
All future invitations are declined
Without reserve, be they sincere or token.
No man or woman to invade my head,
All commentaries now come from without,
Too often in the past Iíve been misled,
But as of here and now Iím void of doubt.
No smarm or praise is welcome any more,
Not of the man, nor of the things heís done,
I realise now, why did I not before:
No man with half a brain trusts anyone?
Henceforth all invitations are declined:
No other shares the secrets of my mind.
