Just a small brief about the poem before u read!
'This poem portrays people who lie like anything,
who dont hesitate to lie irrespective of the situation,
people whose conscience says 'I dont care as far as
Lying benefits me'. Inspired by the famous movie
'Liar Liar' starring Jim Carrey, I have written this poem'
I lied when I was just a mere child,
People laughed away saying I was innocent,
I grew up lying like an animal in the wild,
People thought I was just passing adolescence.
I kept on lying until it became my habit,
As time passed I came up with different tricks.
I tried uncanny ways to master it,
All seemed to me like an amazing feat.
I feigned illness while being absolutely healthy,
I lied on my riches to prove I was poor.
I portrayed a sad look to gain sympathy,
I never missed out a chance to blindly swear.
Friends relative’s teachers or whosoever it was,
I lied to each of them, boy I was such a sly!
Children minors youngsters or whoever it was,
I rarely missed a chance to lie.
I bitched around my dear friends,
Did back biting behind each of them.
I felt as if I was a winner at helm,
Though my inner self continued to wane.
While in college, I made my granny die ‘five’ times,
Just to defend my countless class bunks.
Put crepe bandages on elbows and legs several times,
Just to avoid writing labs while being drunk.
I feign work when there is absolutely none,
I say I am in a meeting while I am busy chatting.
I roam around with girls, while my wife keeps waiting.
I give damn excuses when I am absolutely plumb,
I lie even though I am totally aware,
I cheat myself by cheating others.
‘Honesty’ is word I’ve never heard, I swear!
O'God! I truly am an absolute liar.
