the high decretals

lies that make us look our best
are the finest ones the almost true
we bring them out to public view
announcing that the servile rest
are here in honour of our quest
their oaths of serfdom to renew
while we who are the happy few
put their hard service to the test
it's easy to announce fresh lies
we've gone and told so many tales
another should matter not a bit
the word that we are heroes flies
to those who'd swallow even whales
and no one points out that it's shit
