"You Lie!" by Joe DiMino.

If positives arise out of negatives
It is an act of God
And not validation for cunning;
If good manifests from evil
Simply it is because
Good is good, and that
Nothing can change;
For there is something in all men
Worth saving,
Despite their surface distortions-

So the man with best intentions
When resorting to lies
To further agendas
While speaking from a pulpit
Of Sacred trust
Surrounds himself
With a temple
Of self-worship;
If any truth
It is lost in justification
Of the indefensible-
