Pharaohs of Lies

Image
They breathe yet in hallowed houses Trading, feeding fat on common goods – Smooth tongues, vain vows, impotent priests!
Pharaohs of lies Masons of deceit, building their own walls Hedging the truth in double speaks And false deeds Don’t ask where goes a wasted dream The pharaohs of lies are the harbingers Of doom To things that are and to come!
Pharaohs of lies Men bonded by misdeeds Awarded for deceit Celebrated by cronies and the deceived! Once they come in the meekness Of a pardoned soul Then they are back to playing gods And demigods To be worshiped by the hands that molded them!
Pharaohs of lies Lost in the labyrinth of their hallowed lair Waking to the skeleton of their clothed lie They are Pharaohs of lies, a paradigm of waste In a paradise far from heaven.
