Seeing the truth is sometimes just a matter of perspective.
Look at the picture, tilt your head to the left, and then to the right until you see the word.
Beware of the liar.

We are many and you are few,

we listen to the crap you spew.

Don’t think we aren’t up to speed,

on truth and lies as you deceive.

You spout out lines of twisted tales,

like politicians or car sales.

You change what we would like to hear,

while your treachery has no fear.

You are what’s wrong in every way,

no longer care ‘bout what you say.

You paint your picture so distorted,

you change the story not reported.

The words come out but do not say,

the truth behind what you portray.

You bend the facts for your own gain.

How is it that you feel no pain?

Love the perspective of Liar, this poem has a sharp poetic point that needs to penetrate those that lie to us in positions of authority.

Oh, how I completly agree with you! The liars are in office again. Are people blind to the lies and promises? We should be scared of this liar and all the people who have fallen for his svengali lies. I expressed my feelings when I wrote a poem called "The Black Wreath" after the election votes were in. A very sad day for America!

Sounds as if you are speaking directly to a politician to me. Who can we trust with their lies? Is nothing sacred anymore? Are morals down the drain of politics? Seems to be everywhere and no one seems to care either. Excellent poetry here.

Hey Michael...I like your poem, Dude, and I really like the pic! Very nice! The main reason I wanted to read your poem is because I have written a poem called "The Liar" also. Poems about liars are always short, because exposing them only takes a few words of truth. Also, the poet most likely wrote it because "The Liar" had touched the author's life.

For you:Michael

Your Liarís, Liar

There is truth in what you write,
The liar is a parasite.
I ask the question is it me?
Or just self, being set free.
Narcissistic is your Liar,
Shame on him, his tongue of fire!
Psychopaths created play,
In this world they will stay.
Liar charmed through a sociopath,
They lack remorse, on their victimís backs.
Liar, Liar, no pants on fire,
Today his play involves desire.

Perhaps 'Liar' reflects the societies we live amongst now. We were brought up always to be truthful...Our political leaders (I am from the UK) say one thing and then do the other...Not very good role models for our youngsters...
Reviewed by Keith Rowley 4/28/2012
I like this - it speaks to modern politics and those politicians who dwell in the sewers (amongst others). it's the sort of material we should present to children constantly to show them that there is another way and that the corruption we see all around us is to be rejected not embraced. For we really do have to fight to build a new culture of honesty from the ruins created by the liars. Well done mate.

Excellent poem about a subject which makes most people run from those who holds such a talent...

A really good liar will not even tell themselves the truth... this way they don't have to 'feel the pain' of their own handy work. Besides, most liars fall into the category of Narcissism.

Honesty hugs~

This is awesome! It is a sad truth... The hardest part about loving a liar? By the time you find out they didn't care and felt no pain, your heart has been crushed. I recently went through this and felt every minute of it... but she didn't.

Reviewed by c lea harris 8/21/2010
God, this is so true. How can anyone stand there, look you dead straight in the eyes and lie to someone, especially if it's to someone they claim they love. My dad always told me though, don't lie, for one, you have to come up with another lie to cover that one, and so on, then you forget, what you told, and more important who you told them to. Tell the truth and and you have nothing to worry about. Lies, what most people do not realize, even though they think they're good for the moment, do come back and bite you in the ass, and then you have lost face, unless of course, your circle are liars, and that's just they way they think they should live life.
Liars are the worst, and even when they are caught, why does it seem they have to come up with another lie for the reason they lied in the first place. Too bad it's not a crime when you catch and can prove someone lied, but I guess it does work out in the end when they are caught, for now they no longer have the trust they thought they had, not amongest the liars they hang around with. What's the old sayind, honor among thieves, but when it comes down to the truth,,,,great posts, and all liars do have a special place as well as lost a good many friends because of their lies.
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 7/19/2010
You've described the liar well, and there are many of them out there in this world. When I was growing up my daddy always told me that my word was my honor. If I told someone I would do something I'd do it at all costs just so I could keep my word.

Wish people felt that way in this day and time.

Reviewed by Richard Orey 4/29/2010
Reading "The Liar" brings to mind my many years of courtroom background where we learn what is taught in law school: "Eyewitness testimony is the least reliable evidence of all," where the only difference between a mistake and a lie is intent.

And as we've all learned years ago, "The road to hell is paved with good intent."

If I had more amibition, I'd commit this poem to memory. I won't. But I will put it in my Memory File.

Final word: No man hates a liar as much as a lied-to woman!
