Those Honoring Truth Have Become The Threats


Victims of deception,
Are no longer today exceptions.
But made to look like fools...
To speak the truth.
Since deception has become the rule.
Deception is accepted.
And today deception rules.

People have become upset,
When the truth is used as evidence.
People have become upset,
When the truth is used as evidence,
And...
The exposing of it they can not be convinced.

People protest,
With wishes to have their delusions protected.
And for whatever the reason is...
Those knowing the truth have become suspected.
Those honoring truth have become the threats.

Victims of deception,
Are no longer today exceptions.
But made to look like fools...
To speak the truth.
Since deception has become the rule.
Deception is accepted.
And today deception rules.
With many making choices to be duped by it.

'Aren't they wonderful? '

~WONDERFUL?
But they are liars.
All are clearly liars.
And THAT makes them wonderful? ~

'YES...
The 'best' of liars yet.
The best liars we can get.'

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
