Of Truth and Political Discourse

by Steven McDougal

COME lie to me now, come sing me a song;
Something simple that will shield me from fear.
Deceitfully play me, lead me along;
Facts and the truth are a ponderous smear.

Make it simple, make it easy to see;
A puffy white cloud hung high in the sky.
Steer us 'round the truth of this storm-tossed sea;
Pass by the ledge, the road narrow and high.

The powerful won't speak it on a dare.
Those with knowledge patiently wince and groan.
The sorrowful only tread there with care.
As for me? I just feel numb and alone.

The next chance we get we'll vote with a verve,
And again we'll get just what we deserve.
