Utter

i utter the banalities of a civilised society
ingrained and indoctrinated from day one
i open my mouth and tell another socially sanctified lie

your eyes harden briefly
or sometimes you frown a little
as if you recognise the lie
but then you smile and nod

and we continue to dance the dance
as is proper and seemly
in a way that doesn't ruffle feathers
because we are well trained
and we know our place
