Tears of Autumn

            They had no politics. They had no morals, except among themselves. They lied to everyone except their government, even to their children and the women they entered, about their purposes and their work. Yet they cared about nothing but the truth. They would corrupt men, suborn women, steal, remove governments to obtain the truth, cleansed of rationalization and every other modifier. To one another they spoke only the truth. Their friendships were deeper than marriage. They needed each other's trust as other men needed love.
