You Will 'Never' Be A Good Liar

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I admit...
I use to wish to have capabilities to lie,
And get away with it.
But I was told when much younger,
A liar I could never be.
Because in the telling of one,
I was not suppose to apologize.
Then while trembling with my eyes in tears,
Admit something I did...
BEFORE it was discovered,
I couldn't lie effectively.

What is the matter with you? '

I was going to lie.

About what? '

About taking out the garbage.

Did you take it out? '


'Then 'why' are you crying? '

I didn't want you to punish me.
If I lied about taking it out,
And I really didn't.
I decided that I should.

'You will 'never' be a good liar.'

If I don't...
Will that make you mad at me?
Should I try harder?
