Life, society /
A myriad of lies that crossed those lips, flickered off a tongue forked like a snake's
You sought to gain unwavering confidence that simply wasn't yours to take
Foolishly it was granted, with no thought given to the cost or what's at stake
A pity it was too little, too late, the realization that all of it was just a fake
by Em (marmite)
The people who think they can lie and cheat are the worse but they always get caught out. A very good rhyming piece.
I really enjoyed this poem.

I like the long rhyming spaced lines. The snake metaphor works too, an evilness of words delivered without thought of their consequences.
This happens all too often, doesn't it?
