Following a line of thought,
Jumping to conclusions,
Secret plans of sabotage
with malice and collusions.

Deep cabals of torment
Entwine the fractured mind,
Splitting logic structures
of sequence and of time.

A harmless cough becomes a slant.
"Um-Hum" betrays deceit.
Suspicions become certainty,
decisions rise to meet.

Conviction spawns the actions that
remorse won't justify.
For ownership of end result
must shirk or flat deny.

But how are notions nurtured
That have no mass or weight?
Momentum's apparatus
most surely creates fate.
