Lies Flying (standard:poetry, 73 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Aug 17 2012Views/Reads: 1235/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Politics is hard enough to follow, and equally difficult are lies and deception...

Lies flying 

Truth dying 

People too 


Give me back 

My country lost 

Play a hymn 

To what it cost 

Colors gone 

And sides were taken 

Will this end 

In banner shaken 

Gray was gray 

And blue was blue 

No tone between 

Nor greater hue 

Tell me now 

Just who is right 

That I might see 

An end in sight 

North be north 

And south just that 

Why then be 

This greatest spat
