Age of true lies

We live in age where virtues are vice,
We live in age where foolish are wise,
We live in age of misses and tries,
We live in age of umpteen true lies.

We live in age where news is fake,
We live in age where fact has few take,
We live in age where morals are low,
We live in age where money do glow.

We live in age of poor and plenty,
We live in age where full is empty,
We live in age where principles are rare,
We live in age where greed go bare.

We live in age where we might wonder,
If things can change or just surrender,
Though that may sound a bit strange,
But history has shown that ages do change.

 So if we take a stand for right cause,
Then this age will be forced to pause.
The day we stop accepting the wrong,
The foundation of justice will lay strong.

Then we can acclaim with all our force,
That this age is back on the course,
We will have future where facts revives,
And will live in age that ended true lies.
