A Perfect Lie

A Perfect Lie

 

 

They’d calculated such a perfect lie
that afterward they simply had to boast.
They drank a toast to all their brains. And why?
They’d calculated such a perfect lie!
Cheerleaders, stripped to underwear, let fly
with hip-hurrays and cleavage shots. Almost
they’d calculated such a perfect lie
that afterward they simply had to boast.
