double your money back, guaranteed

Truth lies

Truth lies (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I’m sorry to be the one to tell you
that in life there just are no guarantees
I know this is a sad inconvenient fact
and it’s not one that everybody agrees

sold false marketing gimmicks that we really can’t afford
while deluding ourselves into believing politician’s promises and lies
as the press reports the disaster of the day then looks the other way
and so, in the end, no one will be the wise

of course, what does this one cynical old man really know?
for all I know, everything could turn out right
and if you want to believe in that, then just don’t listen to me
my words and poetry are plainly simple and trite

but remember that it’s said that nothing in life is certain
except for the proverbial death and taxes
so, I say that you might as well sit back and enjoy the ride
and smile as your mind and body becomes one and relaxes
