Rookie (1962 - / Milwaukee, WI USA)

Even if they have pictures

No matter what they tell you
No matter how they beg
Do not – I repeat – Do Not
tell people the truth
People do not really
want to know the truth
Lie - make up shit if you have to
But do not ever tell them the truth
They prefer their fantasies
They prefer their make-believe
safety net webbed about them
suffocating tightly
like the larder of a spider

If you tell people the truth
they’ll just crucify you
hang you from some tree
and then
make shit up about you
