Lying To Cover Up Lies
Poem By Tom Maxwell
Our world seem to produce, more thieves & liars everyday,
they will gain your trust, with their games,
then stab you in the back, as they run away.
Not caring about anything in life, except to win at their game,
they don't have a conscience, always an excuse,
someone else to blame.
Using any body, or taking anything,
to get what they want for themselves,
lying to cover up lies, what a waste of time, they really need help.
Spending so many hours, looking for another victim,
they work hard at it everyday, thinking they are so smart,
their always broke, some don't even have a home to stay.
Trying to support their habits, or get what they want,
for their daily fix, they will do anything,
for a few hours of pleasure, that gives them their kicks.
They can never get ahead, always falling farther behind,
They don't have a clue about the real world,
others are so for gone, it seems they lost their mind.
Not caring for their children, family & friends,
who are honest, the people they should love and trust,
so many die young, or end up the subject of a bust.
No life long friendships,
because of their plots and schemes,
never feeling the gifts, a true friend can bring.
Someday they will be hurting, and will need a honest friend,
to help them with their needs,
only then they will realize what they lost, for all their greed.
