Confessions of a Compulsive Liar

Okay, listen up, here's the deal
Know that my lies are always based
Off something that I know is real
An event I would hate to waste

But that doesn't mean all I say
Is nothing you could dare to trust
Just because I lie everyday
Should my lies be viewed with disgust?

All they are are stories told
Spun from truth (though some are not)
Should storytellers ever scold
Those who only twist truth a lot?

Just because I lie every day
Does not mean lies are all I say

This is wonderful. For a poem based on lies it is increadibly true.    And beautifully expresive.
