House of Lies

Sad how a house of unconvincing liars.

Forget the cost of life lost in burnout towers.

For a career they represent the nation so say.

Possibly present in parliament every third day?

To shout ye or nay justifying expenses.

From the same tradition & blood coloured benches,

Ye’s sent boyhood friends for certain to die.

In a nightmare of gas & mud WW1 trenches.

When the then house of liars standing should have cried why!?

They cheered for war between kings with a nationalistic lie.

Again they represented the nation so say?

Writing a cheque of dead lives for a country to pay.
