Struthious Denials Cause Greater Later Pain

Hide your head in the sand. What you don't see is gone.
Struthious denials cause fantasies to spawn.

Hide your head in the sand. Avoid the grounds for fear.
Struthious denials cause all worries to blear.

Hide your head in the sand. Escape deep love you know.
Struthious denials cause many tears to flow.

Hide your head in the sand. Forsake established proof.
Struthious denials cause fine minds to goof.

Hide your head in the sand. Sidestep highways to peace.
Struthious denials cause harmonies to cease.

Hide your head in the sand. Elude each thought of hurt.
Struthious denials cause sufferings to skirt.

Hide your head in the sand. Submerge reasons for guilt.
Struthious denials cause principles to melt.

Hide your head in the sand. Divert for short term gain.
Struthious denials cause greater later pain.
