Few People Are Not Liars - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Is it meant to be...
People are made dependent.
With dependency to keep.

Is it meant to be...
People are made to leech.
On people they can deplete.

Why is it people,
Deny and lie?
'People are made dependent.
Independency offends.'

Why is it people,
Deceive then hide?
'People are made dependent.
Independency offends.
People are made dependent,
From birth until life ends.

Is it meant to be...
People are made dependent.
On others they depend.

Is it meant to be...
People are made dependent.
On people they can leech.

Is it meant to be...
People are made dependent.
On others they depend.
And from them they expect to feed,
Their selfishness to greed.

Why is it people,
Deny and lie?
'People are made dependent.
On others they depend.'

Why is it people,
Deceive then hide?
'Few people are not liars,
But many are trained to lie.
Few people are not liars,
But many are trained to lie.

Why is it people,
Deny they lie?
'Who knows?
Who knows.'

Why is it people,
Deny they lie?
'Who knows?
Who knows.'

Few people are not liars,
But many are trained to lie.
Few people are not liars,
But still they wish to hide.
