Lies and more lies…

This is one of a series of postcards I designed and published around 1997 – its a scan of the printed card, as the original design was done so long ago and on another computer, that I don’t even know where the file is !

and these are a few lines I wrote today …… interpret them personally, politically, religiously – any way you choose ……

Oh, you lie to yourself

and to protect yourself

from your own lies

you lie to others

and you lie to me

*

some choose to believe you

some of them know the truth

but don’t dare to say 

so they lie to themselves

*

soon everyone is lying

but me

I tell you I know the truth

so you tell lies about me

*

you did wrong and you know it

but the truth is too hard

and you cannot admit  

to the lies you told about me

*

you need them to have faith in you

they need to believe in you

so –  to defend their faith

you send them out

to murder me
