Skies are grey it's one of those days

Skies are grey
it’s one of those days
when there are no
more words to say

Around me people
cheat and lie
their way of being
of getting by

The air is poisoned
by what they say
their negative thoughts
a dangerous ray

Causing damage
and terrible pain
to what purpose
this world of shame?

All the games
that people play
and then they wash
their sins away

With more lies
and more deceit
to justify
their slithering deeds

I have had those days, and I think we might know some of the same people. Nicely done!

Thank you K. Burns Darling and could we be travelling the same circles or is it the sad reality of today that most people just lie? Even the youngest ones these days lie about practically everything. The one that inspired me for this poem is only 4 years old. A very calculated child.

It isn't too grey here today, but as for the lies, I haven't had to deal with that too much lately. Well, not in my personal circle of friends in family anyhow.
