Do you believe everything that people say today, guess what, we live in a Malarkey filled World and much from the Media at us is being hurled! Do you swallow all your new girlfriend’s words from her you have heard, her bragging about her trysts sounds a bit absurd.
And the men, at the Pub, those oiled up guys propound such monstrous lies, talking about their conquests like Trophy’s that they now despise. Maybe they should order a Double Malarkey; two shots of BS and one shot of hearsay, after that, they end up with the Barfly who was drifting their way.
The Truth has a price to pay, a lie is free, so you can say whatever you desire, it can temporarily deliver you from the fire but when caught in one, your branded the liar, a person few would want to hire. A person who consistently lies becomes fearful of the Truth, many times it is a behavior that is learned from one's youth.
Yes, Truth has a price to pay, honesty has its cost, in the work field, your job could be lost especially if you have the wrong Boss. In some Positions, you may be expected to lie, if known to be truthful, many will be afraid of you, they will always play the blame game but, you can hold your head on high as Malarkey won’t be your name!
after a double malakey please do not drive. The legal limit is 0.00.tell your stury to the judge who specializes in malarkey. My girlfriend does the swallowing in our relationship.When I lie I consider it verbal creative writing.. Good job. One of my favorites
Well said Ken. You've successfully and colourfully captured so many visuals and slipped in some rhymes too. I love the way you pack so much into your poems. It always makes such a delightful read. Milly x
Thanks Milly, I like to include in my poems true life experiences that people can relate to. I remember lying to my Mom to avoid a beating, fear is a motivator for sure. My Dad worked nights so discipline was left to Mom, a slap across the legs with a strap was greatly feared but I never received a punishment I didn't deserve! When our Son was a grown man I apologized for being too strict and not being a good Dad but he interrupted me by saying; No, you were the perfect Dad, and when you punished me and I cried, you cried too.
Thanks Mel, remember in the Bible that Rah-ab the Harlot hid the Israeli spies and lied to protect them, but her Faith saved her from her sins. As spoken, some men's sins are self-evident but others follow after, in the Judgment of the wicked. I wish I could say that I never lied but that would be a lie.
