Now, it’s story time. Please enjoy!
Tethered again, iron gate sealed, foot-drags marked barren earth. Inside they’d be protected, those who lied, within circuitous fencing, towering, ornamented by rusted barbs.
Done for them, for protection.
When it began, we identified those who lied. Asked simple questions, revealing, before the court of many, another liar’s lie. Motivated to truth. A finger, a tongue, an eye, necessary sacrifices all. Marked them, for liars always lie. Marched them to Liar’s Hamlet, locked within heavy gate. For their personal protection, the others would not suffer fools.
Indeed, done for the good of us all.
Until none remained beyond the gate.
