What you say rings true 

Like a bell atop a tower, 

However, 

Everything you say is false, 

Twisted by the jeering smile. 

 

Your words are words, 

Both true and false, 

No matter, 

For they resonate deep within my soul 

The hyena never laughed so true 

Nor the bishop chant so falsely. 

 

Truth in lies, 

Lies in truth
