AH — The English Language

AH — the English language
What a marvelous invention
One can allude to goodly deeds
Without harboring any good intentions
Why, One can speak in golden tones
Brag about the good they’ll do
It is only words, you know
There is no follow through.
It’s all in how one turns a phrase
The banker mouths such niceties
But the loan, will he renew it?
The little white lies that each of us use
We say “to keep the peace”
Hang onto your wallets, guys and gals
Dulcet tones precede a fleece.
The Liars Club needs no member drive
They can fill their roster easy
Just listen to the blokes down in D.C.
Why, every one of them is cheesy.
Prevarication is a special art
I wonder, is it taught in political school?
There may be no formal class
But our reps steer wide of the truth
This seems to be THEIR GOLDEN RULE.
