Duped To Be Used


Duped to be used.
To leave confusion by the doing.
Duped to be used.
Those tricked,
And hoodwinked.
No matter what who thinks.

Duped to be used.
To leave confusion by the doing.
Duped to be used.
Those tricked!
And hoodwinked.
No matter what who thinks.

Not rare.
But...
So convenient it is for those who lie,
To boost their egos and rely on someone picked...
And perceived vulnerable enough,
To twist the truth of their activities.
With a doing of this done,
By the ones valuing to pride their slick tongues.

Duped to be used.
And left confused by the doing.
Duped to be used.
To trick.
And hoodwink.

Until those picked become suspicious of it.
To then realize they are not the only victims of this.
There have been others too buying into this mental slickness,
Unknowing how quick they have been to listen...
To someone with issues they are unable to admit,
By lieing as a habit they will do and not quit.
Just for the attention of it they get.
With a relishing done in embellishments.

Not rare.
But...
Those who lie on others,
Don't really care.

Duped to be used.
And left confused by the doing.
Duped to be used.
To trick those hoodwinked.
No matter what who thinks.

Not rare.
But...
Those who lie on others,
Don't care.

Duped to be used.
And left confused by the doing.
Duped to be used.
Are those tricked!
And hoodwinked.
No matter what who thinks.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
