its more of short poem that has a twisted meaning

He was a wise man,
All that he was, was wise,
Nothing more than,
A simple tale of lies,
Tell the truth or the truth will tell itself,
Was the wise mans proverb,
Books and books full of sayings, lies on his shelf,
Waiting to be used,
Waiting for its moment when,
When the deceitful one speaks his,
Speaks his language.
