Cheated Nor Deceived - Poem by Chris Boyles

To be deceived and cheated upon
led to believe then find its just a con.
Words are easily voiced and heard
so gullible to a point of being absurd.

Can we tell if we are being deceived
when we do what is it thats achieved.
Is it an ego boost to those deceivers
leaving hurt behind with the receivers.

Products are sold by false advertising
food promoted not really appetising.
Buy one of these and get another free
are we all so blind that we cannot see.

Everyday and everywhere in our life
deceivers cheat leaving us with strife.
Cheating on each other ruining lives
are partners and husbands and wives.

Bold as brass saying the right things
not caring the consequences it brings.
Lies and deception so cruel are they
honest and true people are left to pay.

How do we trust in this day and age
if all we are left with is upset and rage.
How do we believe and try to trust
if deceivers turn our dreams to dust.

Love is a word used just like hello
one minute spoken then it will go.
Spoken words should be for real
not said frivolously trying to steal.

So be wise about all you perceive
not all is real that we try to beleive.
Look into whats given and received
try not to be cheated nor decieved.
