Crooks In Diguise


For the general public so little respect they do show
They only tell us what they want us to know
They constantly pull the wool over our eyes
They must be the masters at secrets and lies
They lie for power and by lying to power they do cling
And their own praises they are never shy to sing
They must think we are fools in that they may be right
They are so good at lying they can convince many black is white
We must be quite gullible to believe all they say
They tell lie after lie and lying for them does pay
We give them their power which to their own adevantage they use
And the great power they have at a whim they abuse
We call them the honourable these crooks in disguise
Who have become excellent at telling lies.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
