Grabbing a shovel

Digging for the truth

The lie lay hidden

Not daring to move

Sensing great danger

The lie called  for help

More lies arrived

Covering their friend

Protecting him to the end

Noticing  the strange pile

Sticking out of the ground

The lie was unaware

That he was now a mound

Poking and prodding

Putting  shovel to good use

All the lies Scampered

Then all hell broke loose
