Hypocrisy And Lies - Poem by gershon hepner
I'm too much in love with hypocrisy, lies,
to conceal them from all of my friends,
I never show virtue while flouting this vice
and never try making amends
for all of the things that I do that are ghastly
and make me seem larger than life;
hypocrisy suits me, I'm told, and I'm vastly
improved by my lies, says my wife.
Albert Camus wrote: 'I am too much in love with my lies and hypocrisies not to confess them fervently.' Olivier Todd has just written a fine new biography of Camus published by Knopf.
