Certain People - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

~That's not true.~
*Yes it is.*
~That's not true.~
*Yes it is.*

Certain people,
Do what they must...
To survive.
Even if it's...
To lie.
THAT,
They'll try.

~That's not true.~
*Yes it is.*
~That's not true.~

Certain people,
Do what they must...
To survive.
Even if it's...
To lie.
A LIE,
They'll try.

~That's not true.~
*Yes it is.*
~No that's not true.~

And certain people,
Do what they must...
To survive.
Even if it's...
To lie.
THAT,
They'll try.

~That's not true.~
*Yes it is.*
~NO,
That's not true.~

Yes certain people,
Do what they must...
To survive.
Even if it's...
To lie.
A LIE,
They'll try!

~That's not true.~
*Yes it is.*
~Oh that's not true.~

A LIE,
They'll try!

~That's not true.~
*Yes it is.*
~That's not true.~

And THAT,
They'll try!
