False Faces

False Face


Brings duplicity

Back and forth

Lying tongues weaving

Dishonesty and deception

Cleverly disguised

Harmless looking masks


Masks looking harmless

Disguised cleverly

Deception and dishonesty

Weaving tongues lying

Forth and back

Duplicity brings

    1. Yes they do go hand in hand.
      The definition of duplicity is: deceitfulness in speech or conduct, as by speaking or acting in two different ways to different people concerning the same matter; double-dealing. Synonyms: deceit, deception, dissimulation, fraud, guile, hypocrisy, trickery. So yes, a person of duplicity could/would most likely betray someone.
      Thanks, I appreciate you reading and commenting on this.
