Proverbs in 365 Devotions

Proverbs 16:29-30

A man of violence entices his neighbor and leads him in a way that is not good. 30 Whoever winks his eyes plans dishonest things; he who purses his lips brings evil to pass. 


The Body Language Liar

by Robin Aylor

Watch out for the violent man

Who purses his lips and hides his teeth

He closes his mouth firmly fast

In fear the truth will seep


Some can smell his flavored fear

As bursting sweat beads stink

He moves his head with lying eyes

And gives his fans a wink


He says when he can: look man

Here’s the business diagram

Its clean, its green, not a pyramid scheme

Join my legitimate ponzi scam


Ah! at last, I’m glad you asked

Who is this one with a deceitful mask

Who throws out shattered glass, launches tear gas 

And laughs as he brings mayhem to pass?


Who is it that usually thinks of himself

With his pride in stealth as he searches for wealth?

Who hands out the fruit of a poisonous tree? 

Empty hands with curved fingers point back at me
