JUST A WHITE LIE

THAT WHITE DUCK RAN AMUCK,

SHE RAN OUT OF LUCK,

IN HER OWN LAKE OF MUD OF

MANIPULATE, MISTAKE, AND LIE,

JUST A WHITE LIE!

BUT, GOT BENEFITS FOR BEING ONE OF THE PRIVILEGED CLASS, BY DECLARING

HER STOIC GRANDFATHER LIED ABOUT BEING INDIAN!

IT WAS HIS FAULT AND NOT HERS’!

THAT WHITE DUCK RAN AMUCK,

SHE RAN OUT OF LUCK,

IN HER OWN LAKE OF MUD, OF

MANIPULATE, MISTAKE, AND LIE!

JUST A WHITE LIE!

YUP, FOLKS, IT WAS,

JUST A WHITE LIE!
