The Walls Have Ears

Careful.
Even when you whisper.
They will still get to know.
Of the things.
That we talk.
In this house.
These walls have ears.

Silently.
Even if you speak.
These things.
Will be heard.
At the market place.
These things.
Belong in here.
And not out there.
The walls have ears.

We are not perfect.
We have imperfections.
We have weaknesses.
We foible.
We fail.
But if only these things.
Could be contained in here.
Then it would be better.
The outside world.
Does not belong.
To the inside world.
Careful.
These walls have ears.
