It’s a lie!
A falsification, a fairy tale
A fib, that it’s peddling for sale
A fabrication, a falsehood and fantasy
It’s a misrepresentation,
A prevarication, where truth plays no part
You don’t want to listen, you think your so smart
You’ve been duped, mislead, and played for the fool
You will take it all in
You will rock in your chair
You will say, “Almost there”
With your task near complete
I tell you you’re not!
So don’t be drawn in,
Or your hopes on it pin!
For I tell you I know
Don’t be swayed by untruths,
I’ve been at this a while.
So don’t let it beguile,
Because I know what I say!
Please believe me!
What I speak, it is true
Contrarily status bars lie, yes they do!
As harsh as that sounds you must understand
You are nowhere near done
Just sit back, relax and unwind
And someday, like me, you too might just find
That ninety-nine percent done is a lie!
