Everyone Lies - Poem by Ray Lucero

“Lie not me”

Think again:

Everyone lies
Every day
Every night
All your life

How do you lie?

You exaggerate
PontificateWithhold love, affection
Do something you don’t want to do
Don’t do something you want to do
Pray for some-thing
Fake orgasm
Masturbate and fake orgasm (Just kidding)
Tell children Santa Claus and Tooth Fairy are real
Dress up when you want to wear sweats
Make excuses for being late
Look in the mirror and see what’s not there
Cheat at cards
Park in handicap space without permit
Smile when you don’t feel like it
Frown when you want to smile
Ask for senior discount before you’re a senior
Tell Aunt Tillie her blue hair is beautiful
Say “The check is in the mail”
Wear hat to cover your bald spot
Say grace when all you want to do is eat
Vote for the lesser of two evils
Mark voters pamphlet
Say “Officer I was only doing 55”
Say “The dog farted not me”
Play the “Blame-game”
Deny anything
Talk without listening
Say “That’s not my Playboy magazine”
Say “I never masturbate”
Say “I’m fine” when you’re not

Had enough?

Everyone lies!

    yes here at poem hunter they lie through poems cleverly brilliantly.. with a false smile of their top 500 status... actually hitting their main page to stay alive on the top...or asking the world to assess their poetry... (Report)Reply
