PREVARICATORS
(11/24/06)


ahhh
all those
pillars of public life
that we see every day
on the internet
televison
in the newspapers
magazines
professional journals
and listen to or read about
how they've gotten
where they are

they lie

in modern society
if you are not in prison
the psycho ward
or dead
then
you are supporting lies
that keeps our civilization
spinning along
with the planet

you lie

I get up
every morning
shower
shave
dress
follow the rules
of the road
as I drive to work
unlock the office door
turn on the computer
and begin
my day

I lie

without
opening our mouths
our actions
give us away
for the fakes
which we
really are

we lie

humans
lie to survive

it is our
only
natural defense
