Liars and Criminals

Liars say they are innocent.
Criminals say they are innocent.
It never ceases to amaze me
the complicity of the defenders of
the liars and criminals who are
neither wise, upstanding, or clever.
It is as plain as day to see and hear
the liars lying without shame.
Every word out of their mouth is
a made of story of deception.
The epic lies keep coming.
The epic crimes keep going on.
Human stupidity rallies around such
liars and criminal is worse than ignorance.
What is wrong with the sycophants?
There is no accountability.
Two and two is not one.
Liars and criminals are leading the way.
This cannot stand.
Where are the voices of reason?
