Sugar Lies - Poem by Charles Jagongo
I had a dream
Of tongues labouring for truth
Of the axeman in dilemma
Of a man who had no evil
He had a job and drums would beat.
There was Peter who swore
Though Christ knew he would lie
Small freedom lasting not
Tears down the cheeks would flow
Truth all as a razor sheering hearts.
Life becomes so sweet
With lies so true for now
Squashed truth lingers in heart
Under words laced sugar of lies
Truth becoming garbage not so cool.
They lie in every inch of open mouths
All sugar to ears
The truth for freedom sacrifice
Call it another name still dilemma persists
Sugar of lies ruling the World.
