Fundamental of Liar Chapter CXLII: A Little Too Intelligent Subordinate

I'm not slacking
I have good reason 
(I simply don't like it)

I'm not misusing authority
I prefer to look for something more beneficial
(and there is no harm done)

I'm not incompetent
I don't want to be blamed
(when it is you who break your own rule)

I'm not neglecting
I really know the consequence
(it's more effecting to you)

I'm not unfaithful
We never say a word of agreement
(I only make you believe that I'm bound to you)

I'm not tarrying
I just need more time to adjust
(and answer with a deceptive remark)

I'm not reasoning
I don't see the logic of it
(to follow your command like a dog)

I'm not contradicting
I just cope something that constantly disturbing
(like your constant whining)

I'm not corrupting
I always work efficiently
(and find where I could sneak secretly)

I don't make an excuse
I'm just telling half truth
(to not make it suspicious)

I'm not lying
I only manipulating information
(for my convenient)

I'm not avoiding
I got another important business
(that I create myself)

I'm not run away
I just prepare my way
(to run away)

I'm not lazy
I select my own priority
(to spend my day leisurely)

I'm not indecisive
I already know where actually my heart lays
(but I will never confess it to you)

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
