Generation of Liars

A new week, a new poem.

Generation of Liars

No one ever told me

The appropriate response

For when someone says

“Bad day, huh?”

Dare I be honest,

And say,

“Bad day,

Bad month,

Bad year,

Bad life?”

But no,

Because even I know

That’s not what people want to hear,

So I paste on a smile,

And belt out,

“Nope, everything’s fine.”

Because we are the liars of the generation
