permission to lie


permission to lie
when the choice is
truth or belt beating

when the choice is
the adult you do not choose
to be
Peter Pan will guide you

beware becoming
the adult of hate
and telling a lie
the eyes, the sweat
betrays the mind
no the nose will not grow
eyes will grow like saucers
sweat will pour in rivulets
when telling a whopper

permission to lie
when soul no longer seeking
power prestige and wealth
for the sake of same

how to get back
to where we once belonged?

“listen to the children,
what they say…”
