Which liars deny,
They did or did not tell...
The bigger lie.
Or acknowledge any used,
To coverup any known!
Only shows that lies,
Are being told!
And on a daily basis,
They have been sold!

Has been built on them.

When even the churches,
Are dens of sins!

Those who speak with a truthfulness,
Who are character assassinated...
And dragged through the mud,
A society that is witnessed falling ...

That I am troubled too.
You may never know that,
Like I do.
You may never see me frown
Or hold a grudge...
But I have been down.
So low I couldn't budge!
