Fundamental of Liar Chapter CXLVI: Surviving is Stealing, Lying and Leaving

Even though it is unfair
Even though it is rude
The first thing I demand is
More for me
How I could gain benefit even from the wrong movement
So even though everyone see me as a leech
Even though I will be accused greed
As long as I could get shelter for inconvenient time 
I give no damn

Even though it is cruel
Even though it hurts
The first thing I do is 
Protecting me
How I could land safely even I fall
So even though everyone see me as a traitor
Even though I must sacrifice
As long as I could keep my precious safe
I'm okay with it

Even though it is selfish
Even though it is coward
The first priority
Is saving me
How I could escape even from harsh environment
So even though everyone see me as an opportunist
Even though I should be a disgraced creature
As long as I could stay strong to come back and help
I don't mind it

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
