Even sun stars die

Smooth talkers deny,
Half truths milked to high heaven,
Designed to mislead.

We can drain oil wells,
 We can't smooth over this truth,
 Even sun stars die.

I feel a bit stern after writing these haiku, but these are thoughts, related to a major theme of Ontheland,  that came up for me when I considered Ronovan Writes’ prompt words: ‘milk’ and ‘smooth’.  In the second haiku, I used ‘drain’ as a synonym for ‘milk’ in its meaning: ‘to deplete or consume’.  Please follow the prompt link to discover more responses in the 84th week of RonovanWrites Haiku Prompt Challenge.
