To Bear False Witness

Why must you lie?
Mask the truth
With disguise
When honesty
Suits you just fine.
Its too late to go back;
I know its brass tacks
Every word from your mouth
Is fiction, not fact.
Your reputation is now suspect
That one thing is certain.
Unlike the reality
You hide with a curtain.
I will never believe you
This much is true
Because dishonesty
Is your favorite tool
You backbite and fib
I should loan you a bib
To save your poor shirt
From the word vomit you spurt
Was there ever a time
When in your mind
You thought the truth first
Instead of a line?
I am really not worried.
I can say with a smile.
While liars are sprinters,
Honesty runs miles.
The truth will catch you.
And when it is through,
The world will know
That you are a fool.
