To Lie Or Not To Lie - Poem by Omar Osman Jabak

I wonder why they lie!
And seek to justify!
They know we know they lie.
We know they can't deny.
The truth no lie can hide.
The truth will always guide.
No lie has ever won,
When all is always gone.
True people WOULD never lie,
When cows could EVEN fly.
