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 Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
