like a sewer pipe.
flashes of understatement above
with minimized truth flowing under.
everything looks so clean
because dirtiness was shifted
it's been emotional
to all faithless followers
who never dared to go down under
who never knew there's "under"
only those who use understatement shall be proud of
protecting relationships and weak mentality
and the fact that understatement
was always a painless hurt.
"a painless hurt"
