Santa And The Boogyman - Poem by Ted Sheridan

when we are young children
we are told by our elders that everything will be alright
they tell us not to worry
they assure us there is no reason to be afraid
they implore us to trust them
and we do.....
we become dependents
of what we believe is honesty and truth
but people are not honest
not at all....
everyone lies
we lie to ourselves most of all
our lies are then compounded by more lies
lies squared.....
that's when the shit hits the fan
and we finally face the truth
getting old is a bitch......
