External Verification

I was relieved to discover
that when you said
you couldn’t make it out to see me
the excuse you gave
proved solid.
I checked it
against friends’ testimony and,
when I questioned the bias of the sources,
got some support
from private investigators
– several, so I could verify
their independent findings.

It was important to me
that you not be dishonest,
so I assumed you were dishonest
and sought all the information I could
to be proven incorrect.

I am so very glad
that I did
because now I know
how I can trust you
and treat you appropriately,
and now that you understand me
a little bit better
you too can do the same.
