Deceptions Were Made

Source


Deceptions were made,

they’re called tricks of the trade,

and for what its worth,

it’s like a pregnant confession,

and the police are helping it give birth,

suspected of killing your wife,

with the only missing kitchen knife,

a good detective will come close to real tears,

feel your fears,

tell you that he knows you loved her,

sit, lets talk about it,

beat your child to death,

and in one breath,

the detective would put his arm around you,

hold you like glue,

tell you don’t cry,

it happens, kids die,

don’t take the heat, just have a seat,

shoot a friend over a poker hand,

the detective would understand,

he would make you believe

that he didn’t die,

but it’s all a lie,

and he’ll say I know it wasn’t your fault,

confess,

and you might just get a charge of assault,

deceptions were made,

they’re called tricks of the trade,

and someday you might be played.

'it’s like a pregnant confession,

I wish I could create such beautiful lines, even it is really, really sad poem.
