Subreption

SUBREPTION

–noun
1. Canon Law. a concealment of the pertinent facts in a petition, as for dispensation or favour, that in certain cases nullifies the grant.
2. Scots Law. the act of obtaining something, as an escheat, by concealing pertinent facts.
3. a fallacious representation or an inference from it.






















There’s true subreption
In its acting nonchalant
Insects? What insects?
