Lies, the painted mask

Making you look better,

Than you could have ever.

As I watch our leaders spreading lies

using words…misrepresented…

I have to remind myself that truth is real

but a lie must be invented.


Which means it’s up to us to be diligent.

We must be the sleuth

able to sort through all the lies they tell

and discover what is truth.


We must expose the liars

and their lies we must assail…

For if our world is to survive

it is truth that must prevail.


We must not let truth be crushed

by the sheer weight and volume of their lies.

We must continue to find a way…

a place for truth to rise…


For if truth is ever defeated

If lies become our creed…

It would be a tragic day for all of us…


A tragic day…indeed.
