Lieing Is An Art - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's not that lieing is accepted.
It is the style by which liars choose,
To tell their lies.

Lies told must be convincing.
That means the delivery of them,
Must be polished.

Ov er-dramatizing?
But eye contact and conviction,
Are most important to heighten delusions.

And this is extremely important.
Lieing is an art.
Those considering this field of endeavor,
Must practice diligently and with enthusiasm.

There is nothing more disappointing,
Than knowing someone who lies...
But is not entertaining.
