Random Poem:

Triple Hooray

Give a standing ovation
to hypocrisy
Cheer for double standards
Clap your hands in joy
when two faced dogs
speak with split tongue
Do as i say,Not as i do
My life/kids/job/behaviour is so perfect
I set the standard
*Unless you look twice*
If you put hypocrisy
under a microscope
it spells the name
of each and every single one of us
Because admitting failure
is harder than pretending
that you are the best in everything
Refuse to look in your mirror
And you might even start to believe your own farce.
