The lie that became the truth

It was a giant lie,

A fib of ultra proportions,

A slight against the truth.

 

He said it with aplomb,

He said it with conviction,

And he meant not an ounce of it.

 

It rolled off his lips and sounded so true,

No one would doubt its meaning,

It just had to be true.

 

And the lie was believed and used as truth,

Everyone said it was the truth and therefore decisions were made,

And then the lie was the truth.

 

And to call it a falsehood resulted in consequences,

People lived in fear and hid from the words of real truth.

Live in the lie, and live.
