Lies & Truth

if at first you don’t succeed

lie, lie and lie again

said the politician

all lies

eventually become truth



if truth be told

lies become truth

if told oft enough

all lies

eventually trump truth



knowledge is more difficult

to beat than faith

repeat the lie often enough

it can be crowned

as politics or religion



more the fool is the teller

even he starts to believe

that absurdity

can be believed



as always

twixt and twain

lies and damned lies

becoming truth
