The enemy at close range

Loyalty sold for a piece of meat, a coin or a good dose of gossip

The enemy at close range

A friend with evil intentions

Searching for loopholes

The enemy at close range

Embraces you with a smile

Helps you clean your gun

But pulls the trigger when you turn your back

The enemy at close range

Disguised as a sheep but as sly as a fox

Laughs with you at your table

But as soon as it’s dusk

He runs into the shadows to break bread with your mockers

The enemy at close range

Knows your every move

Hears your every word

Spills all your secrets

The enemy at close range

Breaks your heart without a warning

And gives you quinine in place of honey

The enemy at close range

Is a friend with evil intentions
