Proverbs in 365 Devotions

Proverbs 12:19 Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

The Truth About Lying

Robin Aylor

Lying tongues sing songs of dung
They turn sweet melodies to scum
Their words are better left unsung
You can’t retrieve them once they’re flung

The serpent lied to mother Eve
Eat and then like God you’ll be
She ate the fruit from off the tree
He still lies to you and me

Liar’s have to rearrange
Their words and context to explain
Pretend, defend and shift the blame
While truthful words will never change

So liar’s come and liar’s go
No good fruit last’s from seeds they sow
Save creepy songs on old banjo’s
That teach the truth of all their woes
