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
