Lie Behold!

That’s the beauty of lying.

You get your way out..

Out of situations

Out of trick questions

And trickier answers

Out of the pitfalls

And out of your own self.

And of very little help

Are the puffed eyes

A red nose 

The stained pillow

The songs you play

Or the words you mask yourself with

Because you can lie about them too

In a million possibilities

For all you need

Are a few teary nights

Or yourself in a fix

To hone the skill

For such is that craft

The art of lying

That’s embedded in your skins.
