24 Truth - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Lies like Icarus have waning wings of wax. In the sun they do not wax.
*
Pinocchio's nose, we are told, grows longer with each lie
.. but it also grows sideways for hypocrisy and upward for
cruelty
*
The boats which to their slaughter ship sheep are seldom shipshape.
*
Vivisectors flout oaths Hippocratic Speech and act
do not match are they hypocrites? dissecting hippos into hippo bits
