Deceiving As A Choice Made
Who knows when the truth began to offend.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Who knows when those began to give it honor,
With a choosing to keep their lips tightly sealed...
Fearing if truth heard from them revealed,
Would label them betrayers or traitors...
By the ones hoping their standards to value,
Stayed unreal and better left kept...
If they remained that way to forever conceal.
And who would ever come to believe their lives,
Deceiving as a choice made to do successfully...
In times we live like these,
That supporting hypocrites delighting to start conflicts...
Would be a natural defense against opposition.
And witnessed to be praised for their soliciting more of it.
And, who would ever come to believe in days like this,
Delusions to advocate would bring so many relief to permit.
