walking the phoniness walk

In the Spirit of the Gracious and Compassionate
Creator of the Heavens and the Earth

Lester A. Knibbs aka Doctor Hakeem

(The Prophet said that our way of life, Islam, is sincerity.)

you say your way of life
is sincerity
but you
walk the phoniness walk

not only in physical mannerisms
but how you talk
and what you say

so deeply habitual
you don’t know
you are lying

sincerity has come to mean
its opposite

 6 Muharram 1440
