Hypocrisy

Those who would deny
That we are all hypocrites to some extent,
Should repent
Of their lie!

A few,
Its true
Maybe naive,
And themselves deceive.
Yet I
Say that most men, deliberately lie.

So I
Will try
Not to condemn
Other men
Lest they should find me out
And, from the church rooftops shout,
“Sir, you also, lie!”.

Some possess the art
To conceal, within their heart,
Their own hypocrisy. But conscience or fear
Does, in their nightmares shout,
“Your fellow man may find you out!”.

      Many thanks for your comment Eric. I’m delighted you appreciate my poem. And I’m sure that you never fib and are (as I am) a plaster saint … all the best, Kevin

      I agree with you, Tiffany. However the wise amongst us recognise that we are, as you say “human”, and that we “all make mistakes”, whilst those who are not wise go round pretending that they are perfect/without fault. I have my faults as do all humanity. Thanks again for your great comment.
