Here's an interesting poem that my friend Shangrila gave me...
Trust is the shiny jewel glistening
brightly in the rock of friendship.
Then, like any rock, it can be a powerful tool.
A blunt object that can be hammered against your allies'

and warring noble houses, against all that stands between
you and ultimate power as leader of the universe.
Trust is indeed a shiny jewel.
