His story can't be trusted

With all of its twists and turns

Words spoken from a crooked mouth


Soaked in fanciful truths

Stories etched by divisive desires

Deceptive tomes of chronicled winners


He tells it on soapboxes, transcribes it in educational manifestos,

Writes it in the newspaper, broadcasts it on television,

Ingrains it in our speech,

saturates it in the soil we plant our thoughts in, and it shines down

On all things.
