Blatant Misrepresentation - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Deception may be dressed in fresh wardrobes...
But the scent of it always follows one
Unaccustomed to bathe in the light of truth,
And honesty!
Those who adorn themselves with images...
Are often surprised they are the last to become aware,
Of the stench hidden underneath!
Although they are the first to recommend
Standards be enforced upon those who do not endorse,
Conformity that defiles with blatant misrepresentation!
