Truth of Lie Poem by Ima Ryma


It's rare to hear a liar called
A liar, especially by
The media, who are entralled
With spinning words to satisfy
The preferred slant upon some news.
So liars do not lie, but spin
Bits and pieces of truth to views
That will help the spinner to win,
No matter that real truth is lost.
Taking words out of context is
A fav to spin at any cost.
Twisting words is good liar's biz.

Truth should be the media's cause,
But rarely tiz if ever was.
