20-20 Optical Illusion

20 nods and 20 winks, it’s all smoke-and-mirrors me lazy bones think Swampy eye creatures say dey got a thousand-dollar discount sofa solution And dey gon put me on a ten-dollar monthly lay-away plan This 20/20 optical illusion be straight up sewer smell talking Old-timey lip confusion, king crab style slug moon-walking Dem gator jaw creatures say dey gon make jobs be penny plenty Telling dat to a son of a slave, is bat-crazy spit flying out of a man-hole cave Giving work to somebody in chains, sho’ do a lot of overhead save This 20/20 optical illusion, it got a downright awful toilet smell Dem publicans ... croc smiling, all gon be flushed up da river to jail Every 20/20 lying double vision, sticky fingers and scaly toes ... swampy sin puppet twins be flushed down da pit to hell

Really like the way you describe duplicity as 'lying double vision', we can't afford to look at the world through rose-colored glasses any more, sadly-
