The Sly Ones.

Such cunning calculation,
Efficient use of lies and half truths,
Occasional blatant outright lies,
Carried off on sheer charisma.
Playing off one against another,
Tittle tattling and eavesdropping,
Emotional blackmail and sheer audacity,
Using every trick and twist,
To achieve their goal…

I wish I were six again.

You should see the letter that my five-year-old son left for me next to my bed. I'll comment it up on your next post as it is relevant there too.
