Honest Liar​






Das Leben der Anderen

For a film about social lying in action, see The Life of Others, 

Germany 2006,


Learning to lie

making  others’ falsehoods my own

kneeling  before a false god

amidst cheer and praise


Learning how to control

every emotion, every thought

compartmentalising reality

more than had ever seemed possible


Learning how to save

family and friends

yes, and myself

by losing my own humanity


Learning how to survive

like so many have tried before

when a forgotten history

returns with a vengeance


               There is a Bar


Mundo Sin
