By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi

Oh, lies,
What would we have done without you?
Upon you is the rock
with which many trust stands.

Lies are merciful
and a blessing to many.
Lies keep friendship intact.
It has the possibility
of covering worms
with beautiful golden coatings.

Lies have made leaders and heroes.
Lies have maintained peace
in many marriages.
For without that
which is hidden with lies,
the joy of the Union
would have ended in separation.

We are ungrateful to lie.
We curse lie
even when it gives
joy and happiness.

If a lie is not good,
why tell a lie?
Ask yourself,
haven't lie favoured you?

no matter how beautiful you look,
worms will forever live inside you.
