Perhaps the truth should soften its face
So the great lie need not expose its hidden truths
To the shame of so many, stained by an act of
Self inflicted casual violence, ruining a nation.
For who is the greater sinner.
The liar or the listener.
And of the lie whose truth is known
By both, becoming the spoken word
Debased and futile.
And Jesus said “forgive them
For they know not what they do”
Yet how can they forgive themselves
Who peddled in the lie knowing the truth.
For a man is nothing without honour,
Just the spittle to grist the wheel of the great lie
Afraid to look in the mirror of his soul
For the mirror tells only the truth
Revealing the petty stupidity
Of a fool.
