Ugliness of Lies

The ugliness of lies
Deception dressed in verse
Vexful to the eyes
When truth is thus reversed.

Wasted talent true
Devoid of substance deep
All these vain lies construe
They are not worth to keep

Nor read for precious Time
But merit human trash
The garbage bin its place sublime
Its cheap purpose - to bash.

Lonely At The Top

Ive been around the world
Had my pick of any girl
Youd think Id be happy
But Im not
Evrybody knows my name
But its just a crazy game
Oh, its lonely at the top
Listen to the band, theyre playing just for me
Listen to the people paying just for me
All the applause-all the parades
And all the money I have made
Oh, its lonely at the top
Listen all you fools out there
Go on and love me-i dont care
Oh, its lonely at the top
Oh, its lonely at the top

Life Lies Ahead

The wall is long and the fall is sheer
This is not the way to go
Who cares who wears the cocking crow?
You should not jump off the building here
Life lies ahead

The ground is hard
The cement is rough
How else can I tell you?
The going is tough
Life lies ahead

Life lies ahead
Don't ruin it
Life lies ahead

Life lies ahead
Not now
Life lies ahead

LIFE


LIES

AHEAD

GROU ND

Thanks to ignorance
The cement is stained

LIFE
ENDS -Johnnie Crockett

Edgar Lee Masters

The Unknown

Ye aspiring ones, listen to the story of the unknown
Who lies here with no stone to mark the place.
As a boy reckless and wanton,
Wandering with gun in hand through the forest
Near the mansion of Aaron Hatfield,
I shot a hawk perched on the top
Of a dead tree.
He fell with guttural cry
At my feet, his wing broken.
Then I put him in a cage
Where he lived many days cawing angrily at me
When I offered him food.
Daily I search the realms of Hades
For the soul of the hawk,
That I may offer him the friendship
Of one whom life wounded and caged.

Take Me To The Top

Dont you know, know, know
Its a violation
I still hear you saying
Such a perfect, perfect night
No, no, no fight all temptation
Well, in a black heartened alley fight
Im screaming
Take me to the heights tonight
Take me to the top
Take me to the top...(repeat)
Too many times
Victim accusation
No, you dont have to take it like that
A sheer, sheer heart attack
No, no, no its no realization
I never had a way with you
But I still hear you saying
Take me to the top
Take me to the top...(repeat)
Take me to the top
To the top and throw me off...(repeat)
Take me to the top

Untittled

They say love grows beneath under your chest
i say love lies on top of your chest, between your thigh
They say children are the future
but some children will never see their future
i mean they might not get to see their future
they say education is the best way
i asked what education was but i learned nothing
They say life is taking one step after the other
i asked why people this days are flying
They say drugs aren't for me
i asked if they know the solution to my problem
they all ask me love was
dont you own a dictionary i said


you asked me for the tittle of this poem
i said whatever you mioght call it

Sonnet: Give Up Your Lies

How far can lies take you in life on earth?
The more you say, the more you can't avoid;
Nor lies can give a person real mirth;
And lies once said can't become 'null and void'.

Cut off the habit at the earliest,
Lest clouds dense-black of punishment still loom;
'Tis best to learn to be always honest;
Nip off the urge bud-like 'fore it can bloom.

Free is the mind that airs its heart by Truth;
The peace it gives is worth the efforts made;
Oh, learn to speak the Truth right from your youth;
The glory God bestows, can never fade.
The things that lies can win you- are for now;
When Truth is God, why don't men learn to love?

A web of lies

As I lay down in my bed
and cry
I realise
It was all a web of lies

I was deceived
as I misconceived
the one identity
that I even had to question
my own sanity

I became a fatality
an instant causality
of using this facility
with hidden negative opportunites
called the internet

A web of lies
spun on the internet
Right in the chat room
dusted into my corner with a broom

I wanted to believe
I do not know why
hence created a world of my own
email addresses
flashing me messages
as cold as any marble stone
The truth was blown
When I heard my clowns on the phone

Be careful
Take care
I say with a sigh
It was all a web of lies

Richard Wilbur

Puritans

Sidling upon the river, the white boat
Has volleyed with its cannon all the morning,
Shaken the shore towns like a Judgment warning,
Telling the palsied water its demand
That the crime come to the top again, and float,
That the sunk murder rise to the light and land.

Blam! In the noon's perfected brilliance burn
Brief blooms of flame, which soil away in smoke;
And down below, where slowed concussion broke
The umber stroll of waters, water-dust
Dreamily powders up, and serves to turn
The river surface to a cloudy rust.

Down from his bridge the river captain cries
To fire again. They make the cannon sound;
But none of them would wish the murder found,
Nor wish in other manner to atone
Than booming at their midnight crime, which lies
Rotting the river, weighted with a stone.

Let Her Lies Be Truth And Then Set Yourself Free

be wise my dear
when she comes back to you and tells you lies
pretend you believe her
and let her tell all her lies again
let her bloat and make the bubbles of soap in the air
and always, always, always, pretend that you like it
swallow her lies like a bait
take everything like hook and sinker
then ask her if she is alright
and happy with her
new found man, this american
who gives her money
and a ticket to her freedom
the citizenship that she badly needs
to free from the bondage
of your marriage

you may even kiss her and wish her luck
and happiness and bliss
you send her away
for good

because, and this you must not tell her,
lie just like her,
you do not love her anymore
and you want her
also to go to hell

(for Dodong Harry
whose wife wants to be relieved
of their marriage because she wants to be married to an American)

Top Jimmy

Some friends of mine, just the other night,
Went to hear this cool cat blow.
The say he sang so good that the roof fell in,
And they didnt even stop the show.
They dont remember the place, but they remember the face,
And now everybody wanna go.
Chorus:
Top jimmy cooks, top jimmy swings.
Hes got the look. top jimmy, hes the king.
Jimmy on the television, famous people laughing with him,
Jimmy on the news at five.
Jimmy on the radio and even on the video,
That baddest cat alive.
Driving all the women crazy, only want jimmy-baby,
Love it when he rolls his eyes.
Chorus
(guitar solo)
Juke-joint jimmy is the latest thing,
Hes got the sound that everybody digs.
And the joint been jumpin when the band been pumpin
And you know theyre playing crazy gigs.
Well you aint been living till youve seen the living thing,
Top jimmy and his rhythm pigs
Chorus

An Angler

Now as an angler melancholy standing
Upon a green bank yielding room for landing,
A wriggling yellow worm thrust on his hook,
Now in the midst he throws, then in a nook:
Here pulls his line, there throws it in again,
Mendeth his cork and bait, but all in vain,
He long stands viewing of the curled stream;
At last a hungry pike, or well-grown bream
Snatch at the worm, and hasting fast away,
He knowing it a fish of stubborn sway,
Pulls up his rod, but soft, as having skill,
Wherewith the hook fast holds the fish's gill;
Then all his line he freely yieldeth him,
Whilst furiously all up and down doth swim
Th' insnared fish, here on the top doth scud,
There underneath the banks, then in the mud,
And with his frantic fits so scares the shoal,
That each one takes his hide, or starting hole:
By this the pike, clean wearied, underneath
A willow lies.

The snake that lies

You disgust me I can't believe you, after all the things we've been through.
This is how you ended it? With a simple goodbye? and now you expect me to run away and simply cry?


Well I guess were not quite the same. For that I'll take the blame.


You and I both know it, your a cheater, a pushover a fake.
Now I know the truth your just a lying snake.


You tell me you love me and we share a night of bliss. But Bam! I wake up the next day and your back to a snake.'Hiss! '


I never should have gotten close, I used to think our love was true. But now I see the cheating girl that lies inside of you.


Your beauty on the outside and you act like a saint. But on the inside there's poison enough to make everyone faint.


You've hurt me a lot, and it took time but I eventually forgot.


Now all I remember of you is the girl who never even tries. When I see you pass me by, I see the snake that lies.

The Needle Lies

[ spoken ] nikki: Ive had enough and I want out!
Dr. x: you cant walk away now.
I looked back once
And all I saw was his face
Smiling, the needle crying
Walking out of his room
With mirrors, afraid I heard him scream
Youll never get away
Cold and shaking
I crawled down alleys to try
And scrape away the tracks that marked me
Slammed my face into walls of concrete
I stared, amazed at the words written on the wall
Dont ever trust
Dont ever trust the needle, it lies
Dont ever trust
Dont ever trust the needle when it cries...
Cries your name
Wet and raving
The needle keeps calling me back
To bloody my hands forever
Carved my cure with the blade
That left me in scars
Now every time Im weak
Words scream from my arm
Dont ever trust
Dont ever trust the needle, it lies
Dont ever trust
Dont ever trust the needle when it cries...
Cries your name
Dont ever trust
Dont ever trust the needle, it lies
Dont ever trust
Dont ever trust the needle when it cries...
Cries your name

Hill top

On the hill top of camomile and dandelion flower colours.
I hear a song with rabbit hears, coming from a church near.
Adoring the grass, adorning the air,
Exploring the maze of spice edge.

Thirsted by the long walk over the hill top
I am drunk of dew on Sunday bloom.
I rest on shade of snake bunch shape,
and sunshine day.

Where the cloud accompanies the constant sing of bird.
And lady bird claiming on a greenish mould brick wall.
Dressed by nature of black spot, red body and white look.
Of Sparrow bath in the green grass, with toys of worms & muddle soap.

I m seat on the higher hill, watching, mouldy tree shape,
And kids from far house playing with their bucket and spade.
Digging the sun out, into the smile on their happy face.
While the mother watering the flowers of her youth love.

Happy day, peacefully made of fresh air, whispering.
On my body, cover in clay smell,
Like the sand in my hands from the soil, full of space,
Infinite moments
Concealing my sorrow.

Gilbert Green

On a hill , inside a house in covewell reach ,
Stands a man whos feeling very tired
Looking at a song he wrote some time ago
Could have made it big inside a broadway show
Every day I go away and find ideas
Think, Ill climb on top of somewhere high
Couldnt I write a song about a man whos dead
Didnt really know if he was off his head
Evrybody knows , thats the way it goes
Too bad for gilbert green
We can tell the world that he was right
Sitting in his attic on a sunny day
Mending 50 goblets that are worn
Humming to himself a song of yesteryear
His hearing wasnt good but his eyes were clear
Evrybody knows, thats the way it goes
Too bad for gilbert green
We can tell the world that he was right
Now the house is burnt along with gilbert green
Sad to see his sisters stand and cry
And in the basement lies a song that wasnt seen
Tells the tale of laughing men and yellow beans
Evrybody knows, thats the way it goes
Too bad for gilbert green
Now we can tell the world that he was right

Lies

Lies
Are more popular than flies.
Lies are everywhere.
Lies can turn into cancer
After a while.
The world is infested by these vile
Creatures, which are constantly
Changing. Lies run freely,
Because they rule,
They kill, and they fool
Kings, queens, and dictators;
Popes, pastors and doctors.
The blind can see the lies.
The deaf can hear the lies.
The dead can feel them,
But they will say nothing.
The Poets cannot fathom,
Why everyone is afraid to ring
The bells, to denounce this phenomenon.
The mirror does not lie,
This is a sine qua non.
Remove the pie,
Get rid of the disguise,
To come out clean
Of the lice and the lies,
Which are more popular than the flies.
Look around and listen.
We are inundated,
We are surrounded
By a slew of lies,
Which hurt more than the truths.
Lies are fabricated proofs,
Which behave like viruses,
That are slowly devouring
The fibers, the heart, and the calluses
Of the inebriated King.
Lies are everywhere,
Inside and outside of the mirror.

Lies have become the truth!

Not easy to cheat someone,
When we try to hide the fun of an offense,
We have to be careful and alert always,
Our actions should be monitored and concealed,
From the scrutinizing eyes of the loved ones,
Or the friends or the authorities,
The same lies have to be remembered,
Must memorize the lies to repeat,
At no point can afford to make a mistake,
What a frightful and tiring life it is,
When we try to cheat and lie, wearing the masks,
Eyes can't be met. as Something pricks,
Words are hard to come, as our tongue twists,
Hearts start to race fast, sometimes sweat,
Lying is not an easy task, when the burden felt,
life of lies worth or not, it seems to benefit,
those who have the desire to taste the fruits,
acquire and keep those as heavenly secrets,
deep in the silence and rot as not refrigerated,
life of lies is not easy to live, must act,
immaculate to the eyes of those suspicious,
once secured the trust and confidence of the innocents,
life of lies is great and lies will become the 'truth'.
