Liar, Lunatic Or Legend - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Three options
A product of the times
Playing and preying on the naïve
Making them liars too
Again, a product of the times
Caught up, parentally pushed
Powerless but punished
Third person rumors, hearsay
Exploits exaggerated
Contagious conflation
Celebrated craze
Three options
None warrant worship

    If these are the options were really cooked,
    Non of the 3 personages for life's theater,
    Should be booked.

    However, Sad but True!

    I'm with Marianne, Kelly. That is exactly what when through my mind when I read this. Contagious Conflation/Celebrated Craze! An absolutely arresting alliterative arrangement! (Report) Reply

    It is how things seem to work, isn't it? : -(

    Kelly you didn't mean this to be funny, right? This mirrors a certain politician and his influence on the mass hoards. Doesn't matter if he is a liar, lunatic, or a legend, he becomes dangerous. Marianne Larsen Reninger (Report) Reply

    Completely serious, Marianne. I can definitely see the present day corollaries, but this was a piece on jesus
