Liar

Liar! Liar!! From whence did you proceed?

Clothed with falsehood as with a garment

You make a prey of the gullible and innocent

Holding him captive with tales that exceed

The limits of truth and possible realities

You nurture him with words that spring

Out of your poisoned and deadly mind

 

Liar! Liar!! Who was she that bore you?

And for whom did she conceive you?

Spinning webs of deceit from strings of lies

Like the renowned makers of “aso ofi”

You are an inspired and addicted liar

Who even believes his very own lies

Remaking yourself into the lies you told

 

Liar! Liar!! To where are you headed?

And with whom are you journeying?

Blessed is the man who never met you

And woe to him who befriends you

For your path is as slippery as your tongue

Leading you to where you belong

The place of judgment and destruction

My name is Oluwatoyin J. Taiwo – a Christian, an Engineer, and a Writer. I enjoy reading, travelling and watching football + lawn tennis. I love working with young people, especially teenagers. I believe that people are shaped by the words they hear or read, and our most important decisions are those we make in the first three decades of life.
