Backstabbing With Gladness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What values do you have,
Would you bet your life on?
Everything you do
Seems to be superficially pursued.
You talk a good game...
But what aim do you claim?
You say you have faith?
What stance do you take?

What belief do you have,
Besides backstabbing with gladness?
And this you do,
You don't have me fooled!
Saying you are a friend,
Doesn't mean anything...
Not to me in the end!
Especially when I know,
Lieing on me gives you a glow!
And all those evil things done,
Are surfacing to show everyone!
