Debunked

fraud-clipart-fraud-protection-clipart-1

 

So the meetings that were called a lie

Had in fact taken place on the sly

And collusion repeatedly denied

Is now admitted as if justified

While a letter obviously dictated

Proves a propaganda calculated.

 

No question remains

For anyone who has brains

That those who yell out “Fake-news”

Are the ones who perjure and ruse

Just as they who the fact-finders accuse

Are the ones to truth molest and abuse.

Sophistry’s Secret

Once deception gains hold

And defended

As gold

It becomes a routine

For mis-truths

To be sold.

Ostensible Justice

 

When a rule was explained

As one meant to give voice

But abandoned

As soon

As one snatched up their choice,

Don’t be fooled to believe

It was done in good faith

For ostensible standards

Prove hypocrisy’s face.
