LIES ARE THE NEW TRUTHS

As the dark pursues the light to gobble it up So do lies chase the truth to obliterate it In a world that lives on lies the truth will always be suspect Some politicians and their business shills Do not recognize facts as truths As honesty can break beautiful deals Truth shines too bright a light on lies Truth is majestic and outshines falsehoods Falsehoods ultimately cower before truth Lies eventually die from too much exposure The light of integrity subdues all liars Beware of those who make deals in dark places, Deceit hides in the pall of their schemes Demand transparency and you will always know the truth! And the truth will always be your ally.

Truths have a lifespan of no more than fifty years, then are replaced by new truths. Until now, in this age of spin, they simply Photoshop all truths.

You speak with a wise tongue, my friend. Read your two poems and found them to be food for thought.
