The Lyrics

So, when is something
less than a mere lie?
When put in front of your eye
is something written
that doesn’t belong,
because the byline is wrong.
And yet what does it say?
Says, e.g., that Don
is the author, but hey!
It is in fact Ron.

is a ruse trick,
as when some girl
takes credit for another’s score.
She ain’t lazy
when she captures
work of that girl,
saying it’s she who wrote the score.

Can mean trouble
when folks find out.
Might mean bind, rout,
even more.
Did that star write
pages between
covers or pur-loin
her or his claimed writing chore?
With the ruse revealed, she/he gets sore.
