Lies Cannot Fly - Poem by Hebert Logerie

Liars are thieves
Thieves are liars
They are both bad news
Years ago, news anchors
Were believable
Trusted and credible
Do you remember W. Cronkite?
He always had his stuff right
Apparently. This is a different time
A dollar used to have more values, with a dime
We could buy dinner
This era is gone forever
Quit lying to ourselves
And stop stealing from the others
Lies cannot fly
Like the butterflies
Or the crazy flies
Yeah! You can always try.

Things seem to be worse
The abscess is now burst
Everything is coming out
A little bit at a time, shout
Was R. Nixon the biggest liar ever?
May be not, but he conducted the choir
If you feel like making a scene
The prisons are filled up, that’s obscene
Justice is selective
We need to stay active
To expose the nasty lies
And to chase the sleazy spies
Spies are liars
And friends of the backstabbers
That nobody admires
Lies cannot fly
Like the butterflies
Or the vile flies
Yeah! You can always try
By telling the truth, no matter what
Keep your eyes
On the prize
Like this and like that.

    Wonderfully drafted and expressed views in this context. You are right. Lies can not fly like butterflies rather lies have fall in hell. Wise and wonderful sharing....10 (Report) Reply

    A great advice,
    Truly, liars are thieves,
    I invite you to read my poem Voice Of An Unaccomplished Soul
