at times, we all are liars
to think differently, is daft
but face it, there are some who are
excelling at this craft
.
yes, lying is an art, you know
you have to do it well
for if you do it wrong, you'll find
that everyone can tell
.
a good lie starts much like the truth
you need a solid base
details, yes, but not too much
just framework for your case
.
then you start building upwards
but that's where things start to spin
instead of building straight on up
lies bend the edges in
.
the truth is like a building
where there is no hint of tilt
but lies pile up until
a cresting pyramid is built
.
who knows what architecture
is more difficult to climb
and which will be left standing
after ravages of time
