A Lie

It was a lie of the most horrid.
A lie that led to death.
A lie that led to a dirge.
A lie that scourged the earth.
It was a lie of the heart.
A lie of the mind.
A deep lie within the soul.
A lie of one.
Led to the lies of a hundred.
A lie of one.
Led to the death of thousands.
A lie of one.
Led to the cries of millions.
A lie.
A horrid lie.
A lie that so many believed.
A lie so transparent and false, many did not see.
