Essay on Lying

Essay on Lying

A Poem by Evita

Just a little attempt at levity to lift my spirits and hopefully someone elses...

An essay my friend just for you, to tell how, How, HOW to:

How to compete with the dishonest and make it
How to succeed in lying and how to take it:

How to lie upon a lie and never be unseated
How to deliver your lines so they need never be repeated

How to create a falsehood others will believe
How to store it right and later details retrieve

How to stopper it tight from skeptical meddlers
How to create your own and not buy from crooked peddlers

How to lie upon lie and never be unseated
How to keep its integrity though oft it be repeated

How to question a questioner who thinks he knows your game
How to entangle, dangle and put him to shame

How to deliver a magnificently big whopper just for good fun
How to get the ingredients and how to tell raw from well done

How to create a false impression when you are trying to impress
How to talk to them, listen to them and even to dress

How to ride a big one as far as it will go
How to stop, speed and how to slow

How to lie upon a lie and never be unseated
How to lie to lock your win and never be defeated

How to be deceptive by withholding information
How to take advantage of happiness, sadness and yes --- even desolation

How to invent fantastical tales and pass them as truth
How to do all this and remain uncouth?

How to spin another web when just one will not do
How to connect your lies and make them seem true

And lastly my friend:

How to distinguish another fellow who's read my essay of lies
How to tell another player from a sap who just tries

How to know when the perfect liar is trying
How to lie upon a lie and tell that another is also lying!

What an organized mess! It takes great skill to make one of those! (That was a compliment, just in case there was a misunderstanding) This is as twisting and turning and utterly perplexing as politics. Stupendous! Marvelous job!

This was original and of the marketplace so far as to be nearly beyond the comprehension of my perception. Talented tricky write.
