Indian Fakir


It's hard to tell a fake from a phony,
they all spread the same baloney.

There is something in their character ingenuine,
something hiding in them like a gremlin.

That makes them exaggerate a bit,
and lead others into believing their bullshit.

It always starts with a little lie,
that they use to get over or just get by.

A crutch or support if you like,
to cover a flaw, inferiority, or dislike.

Inside, they know it's not true ,
so they seek others to verify their view.

The human psyche is easily conned.
To the fake, it becomes a magic wand.

A pseudonym is a good place to start,
create a persona with a big heart.

Schmooze the masses to bring them in,
slay them with kindness and ply them with a grin.

Exaggerate all you want,
they'll never question your file or font.

Some fakes are so good they make lots of money.
An incentive for others to follow the honey.

So if you are a guru, apostle, or poet,
and you are faking it there are some who know it.

Your fame will last as long as your charm shines,
your house of cards will fall as tarnish claims.

The illusion you work so carefully to create,
but bullshit is bullshit and for you it's too late.

genuineness is a rarity and being capable of seeing through a sham of character is a lesson many learn too late ... what's even more discouraging is those who take the time and effort to create this illusion of self ... they either get a kick out of it or are extremely insecure of their own persona ...

Whew!!! I guess you told them, Ron! I think it is easy for people to be phoney here on the net, to let their fantacies become their reality and to offer them up to others. I have known many in the real world, as well, who believe so little in themselves that they create a false persona for those that they meet, hoping that they will be accepted. Where do they find the time for that stuff??? Quite a rant here, Ron.
Take care,

It's a fine line between learning to trust people and knowing the difference between the two. Good words albeit a little venting. Lady J

This is great Ron, I have always found it hard to take fake's, though finding them is often quite hard, though I think the biggest one is in our White House for another couple of years...unfortunately...Ed

Ron ... you have outdone yourself.

This - in my estimation - is a right-on overview of the con artists that proliferate on the inter-net, and everywhere else. Those vacuum cleaner salesmen that sell vacuums already full of dirt - so to speak.

It is so easy to be "shmoozed" in this world if you are not aware, and there is always someone out there to take advantage of this. Excellently written, with a message that should be understood and appreciated.

Light and Wisdom ...
