The Propaganda Of Lies Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

The Propaganda Of Lies

Rating: 3.5

Lying is not a philosophical ideology
Or a religious doctrine
It's not even an art
Lies are despised pieces of rubbish
Condemned as vile and pernicious by history
Lies have no religious, scientific or ethical value
Littering the minds of some unscrupulous people
Often times folded into deceitful shiny packets
To evade the ultra-sensitive eyes of the moral fabric
It's pathetic to hold lies high above the light
And broadcast them in day light
It's foolishness to make lies your ideology
It's impossible to hold lies in your mind for too long
Because lies have short legs
They will slip away or fall off
Leaving you looking like a fool
The propaganda of lies
Have pervaded the fabric of life
From newspaper to politics
Lies are portrayed as juicy and appetizing to the human psyche
Often times plastered on billboards and cover pages
Or rolled out as breaking news
To distort and disfigure the pedestal of the truth
To erase the higher dimensions of consciousness
Lies are purposefully used
As weapons to demarcate the moral fabric
And render the house of humanity to the vultures
That hold greed and deceit far above the truth
It's now or never
That humanity should expunge all lies
From the discourse of life
To prevent the collapse of one of the major pillars of consciousness - the truth
It's mathematically impossible
To calculate the value of the truth in our daily lives
Spiritually, the truth is priceless
It's scientifically impossible to determine the density of lies in our daily lives
Spiritually, lies are very dense - obliterating our foresight
It's true
Lies go against our moral fabric
It's also true
That the truth shall set us free
