People lie

I lie

I don’t like to lie

But I have to lie

That’s a lie too

You look nice

Today

I will call you

A Lie

Make up, Heels

A toupee is a bad lie

Numbers don’t lie

Unless people make them

The big number seven

Tied to a chair under a hot light

Don’t make us bring out the rubber hose Seven

Ok ok I’m a six

 

I had a good dog

She never lied not once in a year

She was true

The truth of a dog will hurt you

Make a stone in your heart

Dogs don’t lie

Except by the fire

Except by your feet

People lie

 

Our world is constructed of lies

Advertising, a lie

We lie to ourselves

We lie to God and our spouses

We lie to nature, and our Genitals

We lie to our hearts

We stepped out on nature

We lie to our souls

Honey I’ll be right back

Love you

Out of natural selection

And a lie that this life is better

Guns, wars, tobacco doesn’t ever kill people

Ever, ever….ever

 The Lies do.
