lying fools

Some men explore what they know by lying.
I don’t know why they do this.
I lean on honesty as a moral code.
Honesty outlasts lying.
However, I meet one-after-another telling
stories that never happened.
About how incredibly gifted they are
in areas including everything.
Which means nearly
every word they speak
is a dishonest one.
these fools think we don’t know
that they’re lying.
