Lying Leaders

I’m not thrilled with many these days

a lot of them are hacks,

that may hurt some feelings

but I’m just laying out the facts

Many may make promises

but rarely do they keep them

I’m writing of politicians,

It’s so hard to believe them

Don’t get on my screens,

and lie morning, noon, & evening

Doesn’t your conscience bother you,

when you go around deceiving?

Conscience Cry

The soul is always weeping

when the wrong lines are crossed

and we don’t always realize

til it’s too late just what we’ve lost

Tell me now, if you will,

how many stop to count the cost?

Do you go to bed at night

with your conscience clean & clear,

or do you try to silence it

because guilt eats at you,

and it is too painful to hear?
