    Words paint our pictures
    in rich and varied colors
    while our actions reveal
    the true canvas beneath.

    Wrapped in pious garments,
    or clothed in rich garb both
    subtle in design and hue,
    tailoring of the fabric
    determines its worth.

    To say one thing and do another
    is to dress in prevarication's clothes
    hiding clarity from yourself
    what behavior clearly shows.

    Attired neatly in sanctimonium,
    belief touting trumpets are heard
    but to the observer it means nothing
    when actions give lie to the word.
