The Substances of Deceit

   The substances of deceit have so many faces
         Vanity and Pride
    must you embolden the hearts of the races
   with flattering words to enlarge your shock
while spreading your feathers like the proud peacock?
     Down with thee Pride! O heart of stone
     Whose eyes of vanity can see no wrong
     Whose golden image is shredded in self
     Strip thy god til you see your wealth!!
   Why must you be so stubborn O foolish Pride?
    Vanity won't die until you admit Deceit lied
