Reduced to Zeroes

Invalidation cuts both ways
from the sinner to the saint
or back again if truth be told
to be right is just that bold

the other end may have a name
still there’s room to shove the blame
without regard for middle ground
the place where truth can be found

this matters not for each side
it’s so much easier to glibly lie
even as the words assume
the vernier of studied truth

that surface all shine to luster
backed up with words of bluster
in the end there are no heroes
saints and sinners reduced to zeroes.
