The eyes have it!

A lie is a mistruth

Told purposefully.

A truth is an admission

Of a lie.

 

A penny for your thoughts –

I’d pay a pound

For the politician’s mic on hustings

To lose sound.

 

For distortion’s an illusion

That misrepresents –

Extravagantly foolish

People vent

 

Their anger – Meet Frustration –

Uncertain who you are.

A cavalcade lost in persona –

Ubiquitous, are you a star

 

Who will raise his hand and say;

‘It’s me, I’m here –

The only thing you have to fear

Is fear.’

 

Oh, take your chance,

Behold! Illusion’s lost

Like the better part of man

Compared to ghost.

 

Count the pennies and the pounds,

Make truth surpass the lie.

Distort distortion’s ill-respect –

Look me right in the eye!
