Lies

Lies, manipulation, post-truth:

can we expect better than that?

Saying, “I don’t know” or 

“it’s the others’ responsibility” 

is the sign of the times when 

nothing is open, and honesty 

is scarce like a bird flying high 

over the barrel of a gun that 

will bring it down full dead.

 

So, there is no truth, no right

no wrong, no answers to the

questions we all ask? Nothing

at all except a construction 

of fiction that is so neat it 

just has to be believed.

 

No truth, no right, no wrong,

no lies, except what we are

told is true by those who  we

trust that are supposed to know.
