To Tell The truth

Patty’s Perspective

To Tell The truth

He who tells a lie is not sensible of how great a task he undertakes: for he must be forced to invent twenty more to maintain that one."

[Alexander Pope; Thoughts on Various Subjects]

A poet shares.......

~ Pants on Fire ~

Are you truly a man of your word?

Can I trust all I've heard?

Thou shall not lie or mislead

for this my brother tis a dirty deed.

I mean....

You're not under oath with a bible in court.

But somehow your facts always fall short!

You may say, "I'm sorry, I made a little mistake"

That leads me to understand your words are little fake?.

This kind of gouge in the way I see you,

You can't smooth or sand it.

Once known as liar, you're forever branded.

If someone asked about you,

I'd say heed the words be him foe or friend.

Because I believe his lies will surly scorn them.


"Once bitten twice shy!"

You're just not a reliable guy.

Try being honest in the words you say

Perhaps one day you'll rise above the fray.

Tell the truth at all cost

Because, The liars of this world are all quite lost.

"The truth shall set you free!"

Without it, a dishonest little man is all you'll be!

"The great masses of the people.... Will more easily fall victims to a great lie than to a small one."

[Adolf Hitler: Mein Kampf I ]
