Everybody lies and

Everybody knows it.

To twist a story to

How one wants it to sound.

To convince others

They are correct.

To be seen

In a better light.

To avoid admitting

To a wrong.

To lie even by

Omitting a key fact.

To dance around

Another's questions asked.

To avoid looking

Into a single mirror.

To deny what is

Right in front of oneself.

To hid behind

Some mask.

To take up a

Role to play.

To say a white lie

Thinking it hurts not.

To protect others

Or oneself.

To avoid losing face.

Being polite.

Lies everyday.

Lies every way.

Lies for every reason and

For all intents and purposes.
