Betrayal's Trademark - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Face beguiled in innocence
Outlook constructed as a dove
within is multi-coloured like chameleon
Outwardly appearing friendly
But deep down is a foe
Surreptiously eaten deep like termite
Cunningly slides like a serpent
Biting his innocent victims
With its virulent venom
Injected deep into the bone marrow
Leaving behind a postrate being
Before finally showing true colour
That's betrayal's trademark
A deceptive friend, beguiled foe

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Some pretend to be friends onlyto betray at critical moments
