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 Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
