Lion or lying

Doreene Felder 1967 (Phila.)



When you tell a lie
It takes away from who you are
Makes a sound like a lion
It roars but you can't hear it
Just as when you lie
It seems like nobody knows
Once it's revealed
It sounds really loud
It's like when a lion roars
Oh what a sound
It's a sound of not knowing
When it's coming the next time
So when you tell alie and you think no one knows waiting for that next lie roaring
Real loud
