I had to look up for the word mendacity.. it's a very profound haiku.. extraordinary..I read it thrice..and then fourth time to get the feel..God bless..indeed apprentices must fear this..

Patti said...

what an excellent analogy- "fear's apprentice" Well-put! Have a lovely Thanksgiving~~~

kathew said...

Jim said...

It's wonderful, Sue!
Woe to the naive. ;)
Mandacity wasn't in my vocabulary before. I learned. Can I remember?

I think your flame (fractal??) fits the senyru nicely.
