Master of Lies

There is one master of lies, though is ways and means are many.

Master of Lies
by Michael Romani

The master of lies
Speaks in his duplicity
With seductive eyes
He offers joyous depravity

He is alluring in his sentiment
While offering what he cannot deliver
Confusing sensations with contentment
To gain smiles where there should be shiver

All as the price of gaining your assent
To obtain your soul at your consent
There is no other way to strike his bargain
But for you to invite into that gain

Recognizing this as his presence
Allows us the keys to our best defense
We are only his at our own agreement
One that I, for one, stand in deferment

Shining stars offer only fool's gold
And my soul will never be sold
Get thee behind me, bringer of temptation
I shall seek ever after our sacred redemption
