Uncomfortable Truth: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


I'm in love with truth, comfortable or not

which often drives my friends away

satirizing world that's lying a lot

pointing at every unholy play.

My rhymes are often blunt, with no finesse

and don't bother asking me if I really care

so wordy and prosaic, so I would guess

but I simply say what I mean to share.

I let those real poets present their art

to me it's all about playing with rhyme

being just an idle and thinking old fart

giving certain style to killing some time.

If you've come this far with your reading

congrats, you also had some time to kill

and I don't know if you are succeeding

but to me this writing is some real thrill.

So I laugh at myself, not sparing others

seeing all the masks pretenses and lies

it's not that any of all that really bothers

but it can't escape my truth loving eyes.
