The Lies I Live By

Submitted by Zombieman on Tue, 04/04/2017 - 23:13


I am a good worker, I am a good parent,
The list of lies I live by -- just to get by.

I have friends who I care about, I have friends who care about me.
The things I do now are so different from those I used to try.

I like my neighbor, more than I do their dog.
I wouldn’t just drop by for a pet.

I won’t have any trouble if I spend all my money now.
This is as good as life can ever get!

I’ll exercise tomorrow.
Next paycheck I will start my savings plan.

I am happy. I am happy. I am happy.
Have you ever seen a happier man?

I love them. Things will get better.
I can spare others feelings if I lie.

I don’t love them. Things are all right.
It’s worthwhile, these things I do -- just to get by.
