He lies everywhere lurking for opportunities
Where he could conveniently give out his services
His tongue spotted red all over with many lies
As diligent as hair dwelling lice
He says Yes when actually its No.
He covers the pit of lies so no one will ever know.
Women fall for him
Men give-in to him
He’s found in families, destroying trust.
In relationships, he’s re-defining honesty with every ‘thrust’
He is the one quickly to say ‘I love you!’
Meanwhile behind the scene, he says ‘Ew!’
Works through governments and nations
Putting knife on the things that held us together
Making us fall apart and lose order
Very sly he is, but not that only
He’s also adding extra zeros to that money
Unsatisfied and discontented
His quest for victims undaunted
He wears a mask, so subtle
As a smile, but only a turtle
We scream for our liberation
Oh! Intelligent deception
