A lot of the art of lying

Has to do
With repeating the lie
If you say it enough
It's eventually something

That they'll buy

If you emotionally explode
Go right off the deep end
Maybe you can force them
Into being your friend

If you mock and laugh
Deflect and demean
Then you can say it
Before during and in between

Act like it is they
Who deliberately interrupt
That way you can
Get away with being corrupt

Act insulted
Play the victim card
It's really quite easy
Not at all that hard

Do it in the name of order
Do it in the name of power
Go ahead and throw away
All of your life's precious hours

Be the Holy Victim
Play the Martyr's game
Punish excellence in action
Learn to shift the blame

I like your poems and especially love this one.
English is not my mother language but I'm pleased to read them.
