The President sat in his armchair, staring out the window at the passing public out at the fence. He was an old man, with wrinkles etched deep into his skin and a head full of thinning white hair. He had lived a long life, but it was not a life that anyone could be proud of.
For 80 years, he had lied, cheated, and plagiarized his way through life. He had always been a dishonest person, unable to resist the temptation to take shortcuts and bend the rules. And as he looked back on his life, he realized that all of his accomplishments were built on a foundation of lies and deceit.
The man had always been a smooth talker, able to charm his way out of any situation. He had used this talent to con his way into a successful career, climbing the political ladder by stepping on the backs of his colleagues. He had lied about his qualifications, stolen ideas from his coworkers, and cheated on his exams.
But despite his constant scheming and manipulation, the man had never been caught. He had always been one step ahead of those around him, using his position and dishonesty to avoid detection. He had convinced himself that he was smarter than everyone else, that he was entitled to success and that the ends always justified the means.
As the man grew older, his lies and cheating became more and more frequent. He became addicted to the rush of getting away with something, and he couldn’t stop himself from breaking the rules. He had cheated on his taxes, lied to his family and friends, and even stolen from those closest to him.
But as the man sat in his armchair, staring out the window, he realized that all of his lies and cheating had caught up with him. He had nothing left, no friends or family who trusted him, and a legacy that was built on deceit. Our hope is he will always be alone and miserable, and understand that it was all his own fault.
The man closed his eyes, a Big Smile on his face, and he Made a decision. His intentions are spend the rest of his days trying to think up more lies, to try and cover-up the wrongs that he had committed. It was a long and difficult journey, but he was determined to do whatever lies or dishonesty it took to cover-up for his sins.
And in the end, the man will be un-able to find some peace and redemption, knowing that he had done nothing to make amends for his life of lies and cheating
