If Lies Were Liquids (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

If lies were liquids,
I would send all the Liars to Sudan.
With dark hands cupped in front of their faces,
I would ask all the Liars, "How are you doing today?"
"Fine.  . ." the Liars would reply
Followed up by water gushing from their mouths.

I separate the people married to women
And I pull out their wives:
"Does she look fat in this?" I point
As I have the wives pose in intentionally undersized clothing.
"Of course not!"
Now buckets replace those dark hands.

Eventually, I 'll just tell all the men,
"Describe your penis."
At that point I will be able to attach plumbing to their mouths to start a tap.
Consequently, every hut will have individualized access to infinite fresh water.
But of course this supply is backed up
By the amount of women I'll poll regarding their number of casual sex partners.

Sudan will never be dry again!

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
