the biggest lies

20 Jul

the biggest lies

are the lies most easily believed

so many lives have been lost

to the sound of trumpets

and brightly colored banners

and promises of greatness

and glory

it’s a confidence game

as old as old can be

you’d think we’d learn but

we want so much to believe the lies

and so every time

they make of our dreams

a bitter mockery

a tool for their own boundless vanity

they proclaim loudly and crudely

how they are winners

even as we see them losing
