We have all been told to tell the truth
And then we tell what they have told
To the next generation
Then that generation tells what has been told to them and told to others
Then they tell what has been told thrice before, making it four.
Then the next generation
Has been told what has been told what has been told what has been told
So then they tell some more
Finally we’re all confused
And that’s the truth about why there are so many lies,
Or is that a lie in itself?

This is such a cool poem! I haven't read anything like it before. As I began to read it, I was a little confused as to where it was going, but the rhythm and flow kept me reading and when I got to the end, it was like BAM- the truth about humanity. Very cool=]
