Of Liars And Thieves || Viano Dee

Written and Performed by Viano Dee

She spoke words so enchanting,
He believed for a fact that they were true.
But now you can hear his heart panting
As he realized the lies she had spewed.

He entered her life like a thief at night
And sliced her with the knife of his love.
She bled like a river flowing with delight
Until she was sore from the wounds she bore.

He promised the people all they needed,
He swore he was all out for their good.
But deep down, wealth was all he wanted
So he planned to accumulate it at their expense.

Sow! Sow!! Sow!!! Come and sow all your seeds
In exchange for miracles many of you will never receive.
They give, give and give but never to the poor
So their leaders walk in splendor while the givers get sore.

Give them one thousand and watch it double– maybe triple
Or even, somersaultically multiply into a hundredfold.
Watch them teach you how to be made in less than a month.
Surprise! There goes your hard-earned bill flowing with the wind.

…With sweet words and empty promises,
Welcome to the den of liars and thieves.

Instrumental: Forest Of Fear by Aakash Gandhi

About “Of Liars and Thieves”

This is a spoken word poetry that reveals how falsehood and theft sometimes go hand in hand. The poem shows how this works in love, politics, religion and ponzi schemes.

In all these, people say what they don’t mean to get what they want. Because truly speaking, if they say things the way they are, they most likely will not get that which they seek. I mean, take a look at the society.. Tell me what you see.

You find lies everywhere. On the billboard, on the TV screens and the internet won’t just let you be. One look at social media and you see how people are living a lie– pretending to be who they truly aren’t and guess what?! People believe these things. They buy it!

First, they offer you lies and then proceed to steal. Theft is well polished when it is accompanied by sugar-coated words– otherwise how else will one be duped?

What wonderful words you have, I am inspired. I love your poems and the way you recite, its soulful. Amazing, please continue with your good work. I would love to read and hear your poems more.


Thank you for you kind words, Kuntala. I’m glad you’re inspired.


Your poem brings to mind the corruption of innocent people. Hmm. Must have come from somewhere important within you.


Your poem has been written well. It’s a very descriptive piece. It’s true, people manipulate others to get what they want all the time.


Love your writing! And it’s so true what you said – everyone lies to manipulate people, it’s often difficult for me to navigate through that and trust people

Reply to  Veronika

Thank you for your kind words and contribution, Veronika. Yes, it’s difficult to trust people these days.

This is a strong truth that so many refuse to accept. But it is something that has become as easy as breathing for so many people! And we wonder how trust is so easily lost.

Great spin on the art of the con man. There are so many Wolves in Sheep’s clothing or prophets with a silver tongue. I don’t know much about poetry in all fairness, but as a musician, I loved the rhythm and tempo that I read this spoken word poetry.


That’s true. Thanks for stopping by, Eric.


it sounds lovely. I like speaking word and poetry sounds nice to me too. As for the theme I find it pretty important


I love love love this! Thank you so much for sharing this written piece and also inserted its audio file. I loved listening to it.

This is so true regarding social media! So many people show a mask rather than their true selves and others take them at this face value.

Reply to  Di Hickman

Honestly. It’s disheartening.

Monidipa Dutta

I really loved the background music you used here. And I believe everyone is masked and thats where people like us get fooled!

Reply to  Monidipa Dutta

Not everyone is masked but some are. And sometimes, it’s difficult to tell who is who. Thankfully, people can’t pretend for long because time will eventually force them to show their true colours.


This is a sad reality thus, we just have to be smarter and not be easily smitten by lies masked through beautiful words. Thank you for sharing this.
