Words as empty as an old well.
Politicians smile with impossible promises.
Ad-men entertain as they steal you blind.
Faith leaders prey on our deepest fears.
Lovers whisper till death do us part.
Truths as empty as my soul.
Because I let myself be fooled.
There is comfort in hearing
Only what you want to hear.
How easy to seduce!
How quickly we succumb!
There is more truth, I fear
In a single bark from a dog
Than any pronouncement of man.
