BED OF LIES  …

BED OF LIES 

Fluff up your pillows, feathered not to tell

Crisp out your sheets, absent wrinkle well

Rest on your bed that sleeps with lies

Spread your body, stretched for sly

Smooth out the creases that may reveal

The hidden agenda’s secretly concealed

Black is your chosen colour scheme

Illusive for the trials – deceptions team

Step back to view your attired spread

On bed of lies sharing pretence thread

Clothe yourself with legacy of countless lies

Being sure to iron out betrayals ties

A design you’ve planned out, not to defy

The infrastructure compelled its frame to deny

Roll it out on your bed to digest

Procuring the most believable to suggest

Devising reasoning for the next lie to be buried

Formulating a concoction anxious in worry

Lies upon lies the truth no longer real

Covering each deception, a lengthy appeal

Many babies lies surely carries

Corruption, deception, cheating and fraud it marries

Joining as one in its bed it becomes

Evils sheets to cover with raptly succumb
