Self-Deceit

Self-deception. It’s the worst of ways
made to lie. “That’s just the way I am,”
justifies each lie by one more. Who’ll
know you past your lying? No one lays
lasting trust in fraud. The one you scam
most is you, your lie’s most lethal tool.

Stand before your mirror in the nude.
Let’s pretend at truth. Who gives a damn
long as I look as nude as you, so you’ll
see my lies too, right? Between us who’d
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀get to play the fool?
