I Hear You Tell A Lie (Villanelle) by Kevin Siervo

I Heard You Tell A Lie

By: Kevin Siervo

I

I heard you tell a lie

They got all deceived

And I wanted you to die.

II

From the fraud words you’ve said

Broke the vows, fooled the white.

I heard you tell a lie.

III

It ruined their minds

Lost their patience and feared the light

And I wanted you to die.

IV

Shut the door and don’t you dare

To teach the youth with wickedness

I heard you tell a lie.

V

And reckoning will be yours by time.

Because of the truth you’ve denied

And I wanted you to die.

VI

In the eyes of innocence

You’re the winner but to Him a sinner

I heard you tell a lie

And I wanted you to die.
