Lies Have Wings

Lies have wings.
But truth is a tortoise
Ever chasing the rumors let loose by the loose.
And those who would fight lies
seem armed with spitballs and rubber bands.
As much as I've come to understand.
Poisonous myths poison us all
Yet old lies become legends
Our story tellers take lies and fashion myths and parables.
If horses could fly, and no one would die,
then the entertainment would be harmless and free
But the cost of grown people telling lies
is too much for me.
