Hypocrisy


Hypocrisy here, hypocrisy there,
Hypocrisy everywhere.
Without it, a businessman cannot survive,
This is how many big businesses thrive.

Hypocrisy here, hypocrisy there,
Hypocrisy everywhere.
Without it, a politician cannot survive,
This is how petty politics thrives.

Hypocrisy here, hypocrisy there,
Hypocrisy everywhere.
Without it, lecherous lovers cannot survive,
This is how contemporary love thrives.

Hypocrisy here, hypocrisy there,
Hypocrisy everywhere.
Without it, inefficient employees cannot survive,
This is how bureaucracy thrives.

Hypocrisy here, hypocrisy there,
Hypocrisy everywhere.
Without it, celebrities cannot survive,
This is how the entire entertainment industry thrives.

Hypocrisy here, hypocrisy there,
Hypocrisy everywhere,
Without it, most mortals cannot survive,
This is how the materialistic world thrives.

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
