I have this gift
for lying, see.
I can tell the good lies
the ones you want to believe.

I can tell you a
different version
of something you just saw
and you'll nod and say it was so.

I can tell the bold lies
the sweet lies
that interpret reality
so that millions would applaud.

Such lies that trick
Gods onto crosses
races into bondage
worlds into war.

It would be a shame
to waste such a gift as mine
and such a pretty face
and such joy taken in picking pockets.

I must find a place
to wait for Ragnarok
for the Twilight times
'till Fenris finally finds me.

I think I'll run for office.

"Whenever a man has cast a longing eye on [offices,] a rottenness begins in his conduct."

Thomas Jefferson to Tench Coxe, 1799. :huh:

Good job George!
