“You recall Agent Nightingale, Haskins?”

“Miss Nicey McNicey-nice? Yes, sir.”

“I think she’s dirty, seems she’s involved in a ton of illegal plots, schemes and scams.”

“Please sir, let me confront her, l’ll make sure she #ruse the day.”

“You want her to do it again?”

Let’s get it straight
I refuse to amuse
Stop the hate
Don’t use me as a #ruse

Been through enough
So have you
Want to see tough
Then I’ll do as I say & not as you do

I know what I’m not
But I have a heart
I forgave and you forgot
Think again before you start

Ana always heard, ‘Who’s the fairest of them all?’ Bullied by a cultural #ruse of how beauty is depicted in society, Ana began starving herself. With each pound lost, she was trapped in the #EatingDisorder snare. Dying-she cried, “I won. I’m thinnest of them all.#vss365 #vss365a

As a CIA field operative, I have a #ruse or two up my sleeve. I deployed them all. Phony death certificates. Fake blood. Exploding undergarments. All for naught. Here I was facing another vacation with his parents and that damn ukelele.

A touch

A breeze

A trembling leaf

A ray of gentle sunshine

All #ruse

A game of catch

A playful muse

Taunting

Come find me

People will look back
on these days
before the #ruse
was broken
Back to when
words of truth
were finally
and ultimately spoken
A new world
will dawn
where peace
can live on
and love
won't be
just a token.

‘My parents want us to visit, Alph.’
‘Tell ‘em my granny died, Betty.’
‘You mean lie?’
‘I prefer to think of it as a cunning ruse.’
‘I think your #ruse by any other name still stinks as badly. That’ll be the third dead granny you’ve told ‘em about.’

Don't confuse
My truth with #ruse
I am done
Playing games
Im not here
To amuse
I gave you all
And like a doll
You played me
Make me crawl
Please believe
When I say
You have to leave
No time to grieve
I suffered enough
In your crime
Now is time
To climb
And set myself free

Today
I am Wreck-It Ralph
Strong—but insecure

That my life
Might be a #ruse
Makes me feel unsure

I worry
My intentions
Can be less than pure

That by baser
Tendencies
I am often lured

If darkness
Overwhelms me
I find in me a cure

Give in to humility
So my Good
Endures

mourning is no #ruse
when we experience the loss
of family
a pet a dream or a friend
I believe we’ll see them again

I could not go on
howling would stop earth’s spinning
for love never ends

The jaws closed over the prisoner. The dragon took flight and dived back into the hole leaving the family weeping and the Queen smiling.But it was all a #ruse. The dragon spat out the person below, who tumbled across the floor. "Welcome to the village of the dragon." #vss365

Men and women better than them had done it. So why was it so extremely difficult to pull off the #ruse as their family had done since the dawn of time? Why was it so /hard/ to fake aging? Why was it so hard to be? Why was it so hard to fit in?!

Something's wrong. Harry’s stiff. He won’t talk to me. He’s stopped laughing. Thinking all this has been some kind of sick #ruse. And I noticed he only talks about himself. Yesterday he flew into a rage when I asked about our weekly coffee date. #vss365 #WritingCommunity

They say that, in a tiny Australian Outback town called Kanga, there are large creatures with long tails, that hop about and carry their young in an abdominal pouch. Probably just a Kanga #ruse.#vss365

Mama couldn't afford Disneyland when we were kids, so she'd spend her last bit before pay-day on the car wash.
I knew it was a #ruse, but I loved her tales of fluffy kraken tentacles attacking our pirate ship.
How lucky we were, to have such adventures every month.

I was wearing a light blue shirt with sleeves rolled up, tucked into faded blue jeans with a Winchester belt buckle, and western boots with the heels worn down.

They teach you to dress like that?

It ain't no ruse; this is what I always wear.

Well.

Well?

It may be a #ruse to part you from your money that clicking on @WashingtonPost links in Twitter neither lets you read nor to log in to read, but Mamma allus said, “Never attribute to malice what you can attribute to incompetence,” so… #vss365 #vss365a
