Forgive me if I don’t take your word for it (a poem)

On top of the news today, folks…

Whether it comes from the Moral Majority
or a moral authority
a lie is a lie is a lie

Whether he tells little white ones
or his pants are on fire
a liar is a liar is a liar

So when the boy who cried wolf
tells me the wolf is dead
I’m going to have trouble believing him
