Carousel of Lies | A Poem by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Round and round the liar goes
of dust to dawn and back again
crowns of briers, throne of nails
tell us a tale of the orange whale.

King of lies, speak in fiery breath
one more story of the raw untruth
cast away all cares, until icy death
contempt follows from early youth.

Burn in hell, you savor the flavor
flames lick cheeks, burning tongue
carry a dare into the devil’s favor
Carousel of lies you dance upon.
